Hyderabad|India,August 2012: Hyderabads Shuttler Parupalli Kashyap on Wednesday became the first Indian man in history to reach the quarter-finals of the Olympic Games after securing a hard-fought 2-1 victory over Sri Lanka's Niluka Karunaratne at the Wembley Arena in London.

The 21st ranked Kashyap had to bring in all his experience and craft into play to quell the strong challenge of his rival, ranked 27 places below him in the world chart, 21-14, 15-21, 21-9 in the pre-quarter final clash that lasted 66 minutes.

The 25-year-old Hyderbadi secured a hard-fought 2-1 victory over Sri Lanka's Niluka Karunaratne at the Wembley Arena to emulate the feat of fellow Hyderabadi Saina Nehwal, who became the first to reach the last eight in women's competition at the last Games in Beijing. Badminton was introduced as a Games medal discipline in 1992 at Barcelona, Spain.

Parupalli Kashyap became the first Indian man ever to make it to the quarter-finals of the badminton competition at the Olympic Games after beating Sri Lanka's Niluka Karunaratne at the Wembley Arena in London.

Parupalli Kashyap's first brush with the Olympic Games was when he saw one of his childhood heroes, Pullela Gopi Chand (now India's chief national coach) battle it out against Hendrawan in the 2000 Sydney Games.Now, 12 years later, the 25-year-old is India's lone challenger in the men's singles badminton event at the London Games.
