All the fellows listed there should recieve Bharat Ratna along with Dhyan CHand (guess he got Padma Bhushan). Checked on Gopichand. he won the All england, but not the world cup. Actually Padukone won 3 different championships in 3 consecutive years.
Denmark Open in 79, All England in 80 and world cup in 81.
