Rakesh Rao

Rakesh is Deputy Editor with The Hindu, with boots-on-the-ground approach to sports reporting. He has turned his passion into profession, a craving into a career. For over three decades, getting to meet and quiz sportsmen and sportswomen across disciplines has given him more than all the pay-offs put together. He has witnessed the making of several legendary performers from the world of tennis, chess, cricket, golf and more. From inter-school contests to Olympic Games, from local tournaments to World championships, from domestic competitions to World Cups, he continues to learn from each experience. Apart from sports, he loves music and movies. Travel has played its part in educating him. As always, he looks to add to what he knows. He is a student... for life.
