  • Viswanathan "Vishy" Anand (born 11 December 1969) is an Indian chess grandmaster and multiple-time World Chess Champion in Classical, Rapid, and Blitz time controls. He became the first grandmaster from India in 1988, and second grandmaster from all of Asia and is one of the 7 players to have surpassed an Elo rating of 2800, a feat he first achieved in 2006. Anand is a five-time world chess champion (Classical). He is the only player to do so by winning the finals against 4 different players Alexei Shirov, Vladimir Kramnik, Veselin Topalov, Boris Gelfand as well as 9 players in a match tournament format rather than a 1-on-1 style match. He held the FIDE World Chess Championship from 2000 to 2002, becoming the first Asian to do so. He became the undisputed World Champion in 2007 and defended his title against Vladimir Kramnik in 2008. He successfully defended his title in 2010 against Veselin Topalov, and again in 2012 against Boris Gelfand. In 2013, he lost the title to challenger Magnus Carlsen, and lost a rematch to Carlsen in 2014 after winning the 2014 Candidates Tournament. In April 2006 Anand became the fourth player in history to pass the 2800 Elo mark on the FIDE rating list, after Garry Kasparov, Vladimir Kramnik and Veselin Topalov. He occupied the number one position for 21 months, the 6th longest on record. Known for his rapid playing speed as a child, Anand earned the sobriquet of "Lightning Kid" during his early career in the 1980s. He has since developed into a universal player, and is considered by many to be the greatest rapid chess player of his generation. He won the FIDE World Rapid Chess Championship in 2003 and 2017, the World Blitz Cup in 2000, and numerous other top-level rapid & blitz events. Anand was the first recipient of the Rajiv Gandhi Khel Ratna Award in 1991–92, India's highest sporting honour. In 2007, he was awarded India's second highest civilian award, the Padma Vibhushan, making him the first sportsperson to receive the award.
