Tokyo Olympics 2020: India’s star badminton player PV Sindhu today said chief national coach Pullela Gopichand sent her a congratulatory message after winning the bronze medal at the Tokyo Olympics, while she did not get congratulations from senior player Saina Nehwal. Defending world champion Sindhu on Sunday became the second Indian and the first woman in the country to win two individual Olympic medals. Sindhu had earlier won a silver medal at the Rio Olympics.
Asked whether Gopichand and Saina spoke to him after winning the medal. So in response to this, Sindhu said in the virtual press conference, “Of course Gopi sir congratulated me. I have not seen social media yet. I am slowly answering everyone. Gopi sir has sent me a message. Saina Nehwal No. We don’t talk to each other a lot.”
Last year, amid the Kovid-19 epidemic, Sindhu went to London for three months of training, after which there were reports of differences between her and Gopichand. Even after returning home, Sindhu decided to train at the Gachibowli Indoor Stadium under the guidance of Park Tae-sang instead of Gopichand Academy.
Fans asked Anand Mahindra for Thar for Sindhu
Actually, let us tell you that when the Indian cricket team won the historic Test series in Australia, Anand Mahindra gifted them Mahindra Thar for the excellent performance of young players like T Natarajan and Shardul Thakur. On this basis, after PV Sindhu won the bronze medal, the fans are talking to Anand Mahindra to give her a Thar. Mahindra Group Chairman Anand Mahindra replied saying that he already has a Mahindra Thar parked in his (PV Sindhu) garage.
