New Delhi: Just at the age of 21, ace Indian shuttler PV Sindhu has created history by becoming the first Indian shuttler to win a Silver medal at Rio Olympics 2016.
Speaking to CNN News 18, Sindhu said that she had put in a lot of hard work to win a medal at the Olympics and she was very happy with her effort.
Sindhu also said that coach Pullela Gopichand had asked her to follow a strict diet, but after her win, she was planning to eat out her favourite food.
On whether she would turn this silver into a gold at 2020 Tokyo Games, Sindhu said: "Hopefully yes. I will really work hard for it."
With a new found confidence and ranking, which is set to improve, Sindhu's next target is to win a Super Series.
"I feel it would change a lot from now onwards. With more confidence I would go further and maybe I would win a Super Series."
Giving credit of her success to coach Pullela Gopichand, Sindhu said: "I've really worked hard before coming. I've been training hard and made so many sacrifices. Gopi sir has also sacrificed a lot. He's been in court all throughout. Parents have also made so many sacrifices."
