India is a sports-loving country. With an increase in the use of the internet, awareness of people in sports like Badminton has increased after Cricket. All thanks to sports stars like PV Sindhu and Saina Nehwal, because of their achievements, people noticed the sport.
With two bronze medals in 2013 and 2014 and a silver last year, Sindhu has an impressive record at the World Championship.
Sindhu lost 21-19, 21-10 in the final and had to settle for a silver medal for the second straight time in World Championships, while Marin won the Gold medal.
"It is very frustrating to lose again. Last time also I had played in the finals. It is quite sad and I have to come back stronger and get back to the sessions and prepare for the next tournament," said a dejected Sindhu.
She has recently said that she would make a strong comeback and her focus is on taking out the positives from the tournament.
"Anybody would want to see their selves getting a gold medal but I did my best. At the end of the day, one should win and one should lose. She (Marin) also did well. But I think I should not take it in a bad way. I will have to take the positive things, but definitely work on my mistakes and come back stronger," Sindhu said.
"We have Asian Games but there is not much time. But as much time as we have, I think I have to get back to training and work hard for that one and a half week and go and play in Asian Games," she said.
"I hope we do well. Last time we got bronze (team event). I wish it to be a much better one this time. Also in the individual event, I hope to do well," she added.
On a related note, Asian Games are slated to be held from August 18 to September 2 in the Indonesian cities of Jakarta and Palembang.
