Parupalli Kashyap's badminton career is a story of perseverance. He created history by reaching the quarter-finals of men's singles at the 2012 London Olympics, being the first male player from India to do so. 

At the age of 14, the shuttler was diagnosed with asthma and bouts of dizziness which affected him on the court.
