ESPN India Awards 2020 Winners List

Lifetime Achievement award: Balbir Singh Sr.

This year’s lifetime achievement goes to three-time Olympic gold medallist and former Indian hockey captain Balbir Singh Sr., who starred in India’s wins in London (1948), Helsinki (1952) and Melbourne (1956), wearing the captain’s armband in the third of those campaigns. Balbir’s five goals in a 6-1 final win against Netherlands in 1952 is also a record for most goals scored by an individual in an Olympic final. Balbir was the manager for the Indian team when they won their only World Cup till date, in Kuala Lumpur in 1975.

Sportsperson of the Year (Female): PV Sindhu

PV Sindhu’s third successive such award comes on the back of an accomplishment no Indian badminton player had achieved before her — securing the singles title at the BWF World Championships. Her dominant run culminated in a thrashing of Japan’s Nozomi Okuhara that lasted a little more than 30 minutes.

Sportsperson of the Year (Male): Saurabh Chaudhary

Pistol shooter Saurabh Chaudhary had a phenomenal year, winning five gold medals in World Cups through the year in his pet event 10m air pistol. Two of them came in the individual category, and three of them in the mixed team event.

Comeback of the Year: Koneru Humpy

Chess player Koneru Humpy, who had taken a maternity break from the sport between 2016 and 2018, claimed her first World Championship title with a win at the Women’s World Rapid Chess Championship in December 2019.

Emerging Sportsperson of the Year: Deepak Punia

Freestyle wrestler Deepak Punia marked himself out as a potential medal hopeful for India at the 2020 Olympics with twin successes at the World Championships in his sport in the 86kg category. First, he won the Junior World gold at the start of the year, and then made the senior final in the World Championships later in the year. He had to be content with silver in his endeavour to complete a rare double, having withdrawn from the final due to injury.

Coach of the Year: Pullela Gopichand

Pullela Gopichand, ESPN India’s Coach of the Year during the inaugural season of the awards in 2017, reclaimed his title thanks largely to Sindhu’s World Championship crown. With a big year in Indian badminton looming on the horizon thanks to Tokyo, Gopichand’s inputs as coach will remain invaluable.

Team of the Year: Manu Bhaker-Saurabh Chaudhary

The young 10m air pistol mixed team of Manu Bhaker and Saurabh Chaudhary virtually swept away all competition during the year’s World Cups in their event, marking their potential to contribute a medal for India in Tokyo.

Differently-abled Athlete of the Year: Manasi Joshi

Manasi Joshi, who trains at Pullela Gopichand’s academy, picked up gold in the women’s singles badminton at the BWF Para-Badminton World Championships in Basel, adding to a silver and bronze that she had won at the event in previous editions.

Moment of the Year: PV Sindhu’s World Championships final win

Sindhu had made it close to the top crown in badminton’s World Championships before, but her dominant run to the crown in 2019 found the perfect exclamation mark with a 37-minute 21-7, 21-7 demolition of Japan’s Nozomi Okuhara in the final.

The Courage award: Dutee Chand

Dutee Chand has fought challenges all through her short but eventful career as an athlete, most notably when her name featured in the controversial hypoandrogenism regulations of the IAAF, global athletics’ governing body. Dutee eventually got a ruling in her favour to earn the right to race again. In 2019, she became the first Indian athlete to come out in the open about a same-sex relationship. ESPN’s Courage award is a hat-tip to her seemingly simple act of speaking out fearlessly, something that drew respect and admiration from the global sporting community.

Pittsburgh Open 2020 (Squash): Fares Dessouky wins PSA

The Three Rivers Capital Pittsburgh Open or simply Pittsburgh Open 2020 Squash Tournament is a yearly professional squash tournament held in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, United States. It is part of the PSA World Tour.

Both men came through their semi-final clashes in four games, with the No.1 seed Fares Dessouky taking out the defending Pittsburgh Open champion, Gregoire Marche.

The other semi-final saw India’s Saurav Ghosal take on Egypt’s Omar Mosaad, with the World No.13 winning out in four, despite a lengthy tie-break in the second game.

Fares Dessouky played almost flawless squash to beat Saurav Ghosal in three in the finals of the Pittsburgh Open – and he needed to as Saurav Ghosal’s impressive speed, movement, and court coverage combined with his soft touch to the front had proven too much for everyone else in the tournament.

But after a hard-fought point to pull ahead 10-9, Fares Dessouky smashed another ball into the nick to claim the title, his third and biggest PSA triumph.
