Anand has won the World Chess Championship five times[2] (2000, 2007, 2008, 2010, 2012), and has been the undisputed World Champion since 2007. Anand was the FIDE World Rapid Chess Champion in 2003, and is widely considered the strongest rapid player of his generation.[3][4] Anand became India's first grandmaster in 1987.[5] He was also 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 in Indian history. As the reigning champion, he will face the winner of the upcoming Candidates Tournament for the World Chess Championship 2013.
