‘I’ll fight to change colour of medal at World C’ship’


Sindhu
 GLASGOW, Aug 21: Spearheading India’s challenge at the World Championships, Olympic silver medallist PV Sindhu says she is in good form and vowed to better the colour of her past two bronze medals.

“I think it has been two months since Australia Open, so I got enough time to practice. Form wise, I am perfectly alright, so I hope I give my best and do well,” Sindhu told reporters here.

“I am definitely looking for a medal here and hopefully, better one the bronze this time, I also want to change the colour, so will fight for that,” added the 22-year-old from Hyderabad, who got a bye in the first round.

Much before the Olympics high and the titles at 2016 China Open and 2017 India Open, Sindhu had created ripples in the international circuit when she won bronze medals in the 2013 and 2014 editions of World Championships.

Sindhu will open her campaign against either Korea’s Kim Hyo Min or Egypt’s Hadia Hosny in the second round.

At the Olympics, Sindhu had lost to Spain’s Carolina Marin in the final, but the Indian had her revenge at the India Open final this year in April. – PTI
