  • PV Sindhu says its time to look ahead
  • Sindhu gives a statement,
  • Tokyo 2020 next focus of Sindhu


August 2019 was the star year that had made hits back to back in the field of Indian Badminton with PV Sindhu becoming the first Indian to be honored with the crown of Badminton World Championship. After being crowned with first-ever World Championship gold, PV Sindhu spent the rest of years struggling the form.

In 2020, Sindhu won silver medal at Rio Olympics and now has the opportunity to emulate wrestler Sushil Kumar, who became the second Indian to secure two Olympic medals when she turned up at the Tokyo Games.

In an interview with Editor Sports Boria Majumdar, PV Sindhu said her next mission is Tokyo 2020, and that her basic aim is focused on changing the color of her Olympic medal.

PV Sindhu told that Rio 2016 was a dream and said, “it is time to look ahead, leave the past, believe in herself and come back stronger in 2020”.

"That was a dream, Rio 2016 which I never expected and it's already been four years. It's 2020 and we all are getting set for the Olympics. Olympic qualifications have started," Sindhu said.

"Yes there are a lot of things to be changed and we need to practice them and we need to strategize accordingly because you know everybody from I think 1 to 15 rank players are of the same standard."

"It's just that on that day who plays well and gives their best is the winner ..... What I feel. It's not just that one particular strategy will help. If you go onto the court, and plan  A doesn't work, we need to strategize accordingly that we need to change it immediately."
