Tokyo Olympics 2020: The Olympic Games are going to be held in Tokyo, the capital of Japan, from July 23. This time in the Olympic Games, the eyes of all the Indian fans are on star badminton player PV Sindhu. Fans hope that PV Sindhu will be able to win gold medal instead of silver this time by improving her performance even more.
Born on July 5, 1995 in Hyderabad, Sindhu has the highest hopes of medals. Winning sports and medals is nothing new for Sindhu, as her parents are former volleyball players. His father PV Raman won a bronze medal at the 1986 Seoul Asian Games.
Sindhu made her international debut at the age of 17. 26-year-old Sindhu has been a part of the Indian national team since 2013. Sindhu has won junior badminton titles such as the All India Ranking Championships, Sub Junior Nationals and won a bronze medal in the Sub Junior Asian Badminton Championships. She won the bronze medal in women’s singles at the 2014 Commonwealth Games.
Sindhu is getting strong support
Recently, Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy had met Sindhu to give her best wishes for the Tokyo Olympics and also gave an incentive of Rs 5 lakh. Besides the incentive money, Reddy also handed over documents of a government order allotting two acres of land to Sindhu for setting up a badminton academy in Visakhapatnam.
Sindhu had said, “I want to thank the Andhra and Telangana government. Whenever I needed any kind of help and leave for the tournament. It was provided to me. They understand the needs of a player and their support.” We do.”
Sindhu, who won a silver medal in the Rio Olympics, has expressed confidence that she will also win a medal in Tokyo.
