Sindhu credits sacrifices, god�s will for Olympic silver

By The Assam Tribune

HYDERABAD, Aug 22: Overwhelmed by the warm reception that greeted her for the historic silver-winning Olympic campaign, ace Indian shuttler P V Sindhu today said it was a combination of her own sacrifices and god�s will that propelled her to the podium in the Rio Games.

�I never expected this kind of reception (on their arrival here from Rio). People right from children came and congratulated me. I am very thankful and happy. First thing is God�s grace which is very important,� Sindhu said.

Echoing her sentiments, national coach Pullela Gopichand said, �For all our efforts I would really say God has been very kind and that�s very very important. A small cold and cough can actually stop you from going where you are.�

�All we can do is give in our best efforts and God willing we can win and that�s how I would look at the entire story,� he said.

Sindhu said she is lucky to have Gopichand as her mentor.

�Hard work is the key for success. Parents� support is most important. I am thankful to my parents, they have done many sacrifices. I am lucky to have a coach like Gopi Sir. If this kind of motivation is there I feel definitely many of the kids will come up with hard work,� she said.

Sindhu said she never thought of winning a medal, but focussed on one game at a time, giving her 100 per cent.

�Before going to Olympics I just believed in myself and gave my 100 per cent in every match�, she said.

�Today, I feel very proud that I have done well and brought laurels to the country. So, it is a great feeling... Responsibilities are always high... Definitely I will keep up that and perform well,� she said. � PTI
