Sindhu gets ready for Olympic qualification

Winning an elusive Olympic gold in Tokyo next year is PV Sindhu's top priority but reigning world champion's immediate target is to do well in the coming tournaments as this is the qualifying year for the quadrennial extravaganza. Sindhu, who crushed Japanese Nozomi Okhara to win become first Indian shuttler to win World Championship in Basel on Sunday, reached her hometown on Tuesday evening after meeting PM Narendra Modi and sports minister Kiren Rijiju.

Sindhu understands that expectations will be sky high but that's something that will also give her confidence. "Responsibilities are always there. People would be expecting a lot more. For me, this win means a lot. It gives me a lot of confidence. I move forward with the same confidence," Sindhu told reporters.
