E8: Sharath Kamal Achanta - Exemplifying true grit and patience

Maharani Talks

Sharath Kamal Achanta won the Oman Open in March this year despite playing under anxiety and his family concerns as the coronavirus pandemic was starting to spread. This win at 37 shows his longevity in Table Tennis is no mean feat. He was already 20 years old when he played at the national level, considered usually to be a late start. But he has since gone on to become the first Indian table tennis player ever to become nine times Senior National Champion and won medals at Commonwealth Games and Asian Games, and represented India at three Olympic Games. He is also the first table tennis player to be awarded the Padma Shri and through his career given huge visibility to the sport. Despite starting with no recognition as a junior player and an injury that almost put a stop to his playing days at the age of 32, Sharath's career has exemplified the importance of grit and patience for an athlete. Listen to his fascinating journey despite the heartbreaks, hitting rock bottom and bouncing back.
