Badminton star PV Sindhu, who recently became the first Indian world champion in the sport, has said her focus now is on clinching the top honours at next year’s Tokyo Olympics Games. Sindhu had missed out on the gold medal in the 2016 Olympics, losing the final to Spain’s Carolina Marin.

However, the 24-year-old is committed to improving her performance at the prestigious quadrennial event and turn the silver she won in Rio into gold.  “Right now, my focus is on the 2020 Olympics Games and my main aim is to work hard and give my best in Tokyo,” Sindhu said during a felicitation by the Kerala government.  “My ultimate aim is to get gold. I know it’s not going to be easy and I need to work hard,” she added. — PTI
