I was focused, wanted to give my best: Tokyo Olympics bronze medallist PV Sindhu


Olympics bronze medalist PV Sindhu said, ‘Initially, after the semis was over I was really sad. But my coach and physio said that it’s not over yet. There were lot of mixed emotions-whether I need to be happy that I got another chance or be sad because I lost in semifinals. But Park Tae-Sang ( Sindhu’s coach) told me one thing – there is a lot of difference between a bronze and fourth position. I think that really hit me and I thought that I need to get that medal. I just went with the mindset that I need to give my best and play my 100%.’

Park Tae-Sang, South Korean badminton player and coach of shuttler PV Sindhu, said, ‘I am also really happy because, for the first time in my coaching career, my player got a medal. I am really happy. Sindhu is already India’s big star, a big Olympic star. So, I got ready for the pressure, but I tried…I am really happy. I believed in her and she did it.’
