Sindhu had missed out on the gold medal as she lost to Spain’s Carolina Marin in the summit clash in the 2016 Olympics. However, now the 24-year-old is committed to improve her performance at the prestigious quadrennial event and turn the silver she won in Rio into gold.

Sindhu made these statements on the sidelines of an event where she felicitated the sports achievers of Velammal Nexus school.

Earlier on August 25, Sindhu became the first Indian to win a World Championships gold medal by defeating Japan’s Nozomi Okuhara 21-7, 21-7 in the finals of the tournament held in Switzerland’s Basel.
