By H.JanGra June 7, 2022

Commonwealth Games bronze medallist RMV Gurusaidutt on Monday announced his retirement from international badminton, bringing down the curtains on a professional career that spanned over a decade 

The 32-year-old from Hyderabad, who had claimed a bronze at the 2014 Commonwealth Games at Glasgow, took the decision after battling multiple injuries in the last few years

I was not able to give my 100 percent. I love the sport a lot and I felt I wasn't not able to do justice to it

My body was not able to take it. So I decided to retire from competitive badminton. It is super super emotional decision for me," Gurusaidutt told PTI.

Gurusaidutt, who is a 2008 Commonwealth Youth Games gold medallist and also has a world junior bronze medal, will be stepping on a new journey as a coach.

"I am really looking forward to a coaching stint with the Indian team. Working under Gopi sir, who has been my mentor, I will learn a lot," said Gurusaidutt.
