Guru Purnima is a special tradition of our culture that is dedicated to our academic or spiritual teachers who have helped us reach where we are with their wisdom. This is, in other words, an occasion of thanking our Gurus who have had an significant impact on our life and career. Sportspersons are no different in this aspect. In fact, coaches, trainers, and mentors play the biggest role in shaping their career.

Coaches are the soulmates, the guiding force for athletes in their incredible and often demanding sporting journeys. On the eve of Guru Purnima, here is how Indian athletes remembered and thanked their Gurus:
