S.V. Sunil Biography

Sunil Sowmarpet Vitalacharya or commonly known as S V Sunil is an Indian hockey player who surprised Pakistan in the 2012 Azlan Shah Cup with an electrifying goal in the dying minutes to give India a memorable win in the 2012 Azlan Shah Cup 2012. Sunil was the cynosure of all eyes at Randburg Champions Challenge I with his sprints and solos. Fittingly he scored two goals in India routing the hosts South Africa 7-4. He was also in form in the Australian tour 2011 recently. In a one on one situation with New Zealand goalkeeper, S V Sunil scored the tournament's golden goal in Western Australia. A talented forward, Sunil's hockey career came to a halt when he injured in the run up to the 2010 World Cup. With patience, he continued in the rehabilitation program, and made a mark in the selection trials held recently. Hardly does one find such a brave heart in sports as is the case with S V Sunil. Despite his father's death, he did not miss the Azlan Shah Cup duty in 2010, and returned with gold. Blessed with an athletic body, the Coorg (a popular hockey region in Karnataka) player sets up goals for others, besides also scoring when in opportune moments. He played his first senior international at Chennai in the 2007 Asia Cup, which India won in 2007. He also won a Silver at the 2008 Sultan Azlan Shah Cup in Ipoh, Malaysia. SV Sunil plays for Service and Karnataka in the domestic circuit and for Bangalore Hi-Fliers in the Premier Hockey League. Sunil represented India in Men's Hockey during the 2012 London Olympics.
