OLYMPIC MEDAL­LIST PV SINDHU ON HER COACH PULLELA GOPICHAND

Hindustan Times ST (Mumbai) - Brunch - - BREAKFAST OF CHAMPIONS -

I’ve been train­ing with Gopi

Sir since I was 10. As a coach, Gopi Sir is the most ded­i­cated teacher you can hope for. He is at the academy from morn­ing to evening ev­ery day. Whether it is a se­nior player or a ju­nior, he pays equal at­ten­tion to all. Since I am very tall, he has taught me the im­por­tance of build­ing strength through weight ses­sions and run­ning. The great­est les­son he taught me: To be­lieve that Chi­nese play­ers are beat­able.
