Viswanathan "Vishy" Anand became India's first Grandmaster in 1988. He held the FIDE World Chess Championship from 2000 to 2002, the first Asian to do so. He won the undisputed crown of World Champion in 2007, and defended it the next year against Vladimir Kramnik. He then defended his title in the World Chess Championship against Veselin Topalov (2010) and against Boris Gelfand (2012). He won the World Rapid Chess Championship in 2003 and in 2017. A recipient of the Rajiv Gandhi Khel Ratna and the Pad ma Vibhushan, he was only the fourth player to pass the 2800 Elo mark after Garry Kasparov, Vladimir Kramnik and Veselin Topalov. He held the No.1 position for 21 months, the 6th longest on record.
