Six Olympics medals best gift to the nation on the Independence Day: Saina NehwalZeenews Sports Bureau

New Delhi: Ace shuttler Saina Nehwal, who won a bronze medal at London Olympic, said that getting six medals by the Indian athletes at the Olympic Games is the best gift to the nation on the Independence Day.


In an exclusive interview with Zee News the Haryana girl said, “It feels great that Indian players got 6 medals at London Olympics. I can see the blissfulness amid every Indian. I feel really proud that Indians are doing so well in sports.’’

Olympic bronze medallist Saina Nehwal, the first ever shuttler from India to win an Olympic medal at the 2012 Games, said “I hope we shall bring more medals for our country in future”.

On being asked how does it feel when you see Indian flag in the stadium, she said “It feels immense pleasure that we are serving our country.”

“Every year we are playing so many tournaments and making Indians proud. So sensation of getting a bronze medal at Olympics when you are standing on the podium cannot be uttered.

“It feels great when I achieve something which would not have been possible without the hard work and sacrifices of my parents, coaches and the players whom I play with. Everything comes in your mind when you are standing on a podium and representing your country. It’s a very out of the ordinary feeling.”

The Haryana girl was awarded with the Rajiv Gandhi Khel Ratna, the highest sporting award of the country, for her contribution in the field of badminton. She is currently ranked No. 4 in the world.

“I’m sure all the medal winners are having the same feeling. Achieving your parents’ dream is such an immense thing, and after you attain it, the bliss inside can’t be explained,” she added.

Expressing her ecstasy she said, “Holding an Olympic medal was a dream in childhood, now it’s just like a dream come true for me.”

The whole world knows Saina did not get the medal by winning, so stop the hoolaboola, do so if she can show the world that she can defend the so called bronze medal win due to her opponent`s injury in Rio 2016. Until then, celebrations for getting the bronze medal looks funny in world stage unless you people have thick face skin and don`t find it embarrassing at all.

There are several questions to be answered before the celebration, look at the country population and the result, compare to uk,japan,koria,china,australia,usa.. we donot match anywhere near to them, if still want to celebrate, perhaps we are dumb nation
