Chess Grandmaster Anand first won the FIDE World Title in 2000 and recaptured it in 2007. He won the World Championship of 2008 and defended it in 2010.
If he wins again in 2012 in Moscow, then he would truly be on his way to joining the all-time greats. He's another strong contender for the Bharat Ratna.
