Dedication and Credits:
P.V. Sindhu is one of those dedicated players who have no looking back. She has grown tremendously in the past few years. She gets up early and starts her badminton practices at 4.15 a.m. sharp. She trains for six days in a week for 8-10 hours a day. She has faced a lot of injuries too but never gave up on her game and never compromised with her sport. All that she is today, she owes it to her coach, Pullela Gopichand. She is quite focused about her fitness and how to judge the opponent and plan strategies. She has a very positive attitude towards her game which keeps her going. She believes that rivalry is in every field and arena and so in sports and her game, but one should concentrate on themselves.
Rio Olympics Glory:
P.V. Sindhu has not only won the medal for the country but has also won hearts of all the Indians worldwide.
In the recent Rio Olympic Games, India found it very difficult to conquer and that is when the daughters of India came forward and took the lead and brought glory to the nation. This badminton player has proved that hard work and dedication never goes waste and you can win if you are determined and focused. This silver medal has united India and brought back all the love that this nation longed for!
We are proud of you, Sindhu! Way to go !
