PV Sindhu for her performance in Tokyo Olympics: “Watch Out For My Attack”
PV Sindhu in a conversation with NDTV told about how she’ll perform in the Tokyo Olympics supposed to be held later this year.
Rio Olympics 2016 silver medalist PV Sindhu goes into the Tokyo Olympics will represent her country as a world champion in the sport. . With 50 days left for the curtain to go up in Tokyo, the Rio silver medallist told NDTV in an exclusive interview, “It is going to be different from Rio. In the first Olympics, everything was new to me. Now, there are responsibilities and expectations, the expectations will be around getting a better medal.”
Sindhu has put her body, mind, and soul into changing the colour of the medal in these five years. What does an extra year mean to her?
“For me, one extra year has been good to get fitter. I am completely fit and keeping myself in good form,” she says.
A fit Sindhu is any opponent’s nightmare. But who does she see as her toughest opponent at the Games?
“Tai Tzu will be tricky,” says the Hyderabadi star. “Ratchanok Intanon and Nazomi Okuhara are very skilful players as well. Anyone in the top 10 could be a threat. I have to be at my best on all days.”
Carolina Marin’s withdrawal from Tokyo makes Sindhu an overwhelming favourite, but she is aware that there is no place for complacency and “being over-confident”.
Carolina Marin’s exit from the tournament has somewhere increased her possibility for getting close to the gold in Tokyo. However she was disheartened with her exit and wished that she gets well soon. Winning the prestigious gold in the quadrennial tournament will be nothing but a miracle in the Indian badminton and badminton world.
