“I have known coach Park for a very long time. When we started training together, it took us some time to get to know us. But we both had the dream to win an Olympic medal,” PV Sindhu said.

“The efforts and hard work that he put in towards me is really great,” she added.

“Initially after the semis, I was really sad. I was in tears. But my coach said it’s not over yet, there’s another chance. So there were lots of mixed emotions,” she said.

“But coach Park said one thing that I remember that there is a big difference between getting a bronze and the fourth position. So that really hit me. To win a medal for your country at the Olympics is definitely a proud moment,” PV Sindhu said before adding that it pushed her to give her best in the bronze medal match.
