And again, after five years, getting a medal and standing on the podium is definitely a proud moment for me and my country. I have no words because, you know, I'm really very happy and I thank all my fans, all my supporters, my family members, my support staff and my sponsors. I think without their support, you know, I wouldn't have been here. And definitely a proud woman. So I would like to thank everybody out there and in India because, you know, they show a lot of support and love." "In these COVID situations, Olympics happening is a very big thing. So obviously, I, of course, out of respect to the Japanese guys and all the all the people out there, because I'm sure they've done a really, really great job. And, of course, it's definitely a hard thing because they have to really work hard day and night. So hats off to them. And I'm sure I mean, as players, as we players from different countries, we are definitely taken care of ourselves. Also, the the conditions and everything have been taken care of. So we've been fine. And finally, Olympics happen and it's done. I mean, it's unbelievable that it started and it's already done. And I think it's it's been a really good journey so far. So, yes, I'm sure it's just that, you know, we need to be careful and we need to get used to this new normal." #TokyoOlympics #Olympics2020 #Tokyo Badminton,tokyo 2020,tokyo 2020 news,tokyo olympics,tokyo covid,PV Sindhu,olympics,tokyo olympics,PV SINDHU record in Olympics ,PV Sindhu in Badminton,Sindhu tokyo olympics
