‘Winning bronze was more difficult than winning silver in Rio’ – PV Sindhu
Shortly after winning the bronze medal, PV Sindhu said that the Tokyo Olympics campaign was tough and the bronze was more difficult to win than her silver medal at the Rio Olympics. After the victory, Sindhu said that not many people expected that she would win silver in 2016 Rio Olympics.
Sindhu said that the pressure was too much in the Tokyo Olympics.
Sindhu said she had a lot of emotions running through her mind after her semi-final loss to the Chinese Taipei player on Saturday, but she worked hard to focus on her game.
Sindhu further added, “It makes me feel really happy, because I have worked hard for so many years. There were so many emotions going on inside me – should I be happy that I won bronze or sad that I won the bronze. Missed the chance to play in the final? But overall, I had to contain my emotions for this one match and gave my best in the match. I am really happy and I think I have done well. It’s a proud moment to win the medal.
Let us tell you that Sindhu defeated Bing Jiao of China in a match that lasted just 53 minutes. Sindhu looked to dominate the Chinese player from the first game itself. Although there was a tough fight for some points in the second game, he eventually won the match against Bing Xiao thanks to a brilliant smash and the rest of the game.
