Earlier this month, Delia Zanoschi and Tum Preugpaibul (RCs) announced the winners of the inaugural HBS exceptional athlete awards, an initiative they started this year to recognize the best athletes at HBS. This week, Delia and Tum interviewed HBS Class of 2016 exceptional athlete winner Rahul Lele.


SECTION F, MUMBAI, INDIA When did you start? I started really young when I was 5-6. Growing up in India, the typical sports you play are cricket, badminton and other indoor games. I just took to badminton and was good at it, so I started playing more and more often. Plus I was a chubby kid so everyone found it funny that this chubby kid is trying to move and is also trying to be great at it. What influence your coach had on you? My ex-colleague, who is a 45 year old state champion in Germany was my coach in a way. He helped improve my technique, gave tips to improve my footwork and mental game. He proved that you could play the sport at a very high level irrespective of your age. Plus, he has this immense capacity for finding humor in almost all situations and does not let much faze him.
