During an interaction at the press conference Mr. Pullela Gopichand said, my parents unconditional support and family’s sacrifice enabled me to reach these heights. The downs in my career were taken care of by my parents and coaches and the support system helped me to succeed. Today whatever I am is all because of the sport and my love for the sport makes me contribute back. The future of the badminton sport holds good with very talented players representing India. My advice to youth is, we should continue to pursue our dream, enjoy the process and the day and keep pushing. When I started playing never thought I will go this far. You should take every step to achieve your goal. Your energy and focus should be in one direction and should single mindedly pursue the goal with the thought of it being possible. You should ensure that you adhere to the process and your goal will not be far. Never be happy and feel fulfilled with your achievements, in which case failures will also haunt with the same vigour, so maintain a demeanour of not being swayed by success and failure. He said, everyone should take to sport and the emphasis should be equal to that of education. Sports helps to develop the overall personality, builds team spirit and a sense of fulfilment. Instances of crime, addiction is low in countries where people laid equal stress on sports, it gives opportunity to vent our negativity. About our performance at the international level, he said we faired very well in important tournaments like common wealth games and others during the year, though we had a few ups and downs at the fag end of the year, overall this year has been good for India badminton.
