Echoing a similar sentiment, a user wrote, “Waiting for the Olympic gold.”
The footage was originally shared by Instagram on Tuesday, July 20, as part of their campaign to promote 2020 Tokyo athletes.
“PV Sindhu is no stranger to the Olympic stage. After taking home a silver medal in 2016, the 25-year-old Indian badminton star heads into her second Olympic Games with one specific goal in mind.
“I want to convert my silver medal to gold,” Sindhu said. “But I also hope to inspire young athletes across the world, just as I was inspired when I watched the Olympics as a kid,” the caption read.
It added, “Look out for PV dominating the court (with her nephew cheering her on) at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.”
Sindhu is the only female shuttler from India to qualify for the Tokyo Olympics. The world number six is placed in Group J in the Olympic draw along with Cheung Ngan Yi (HKG) and Ksenia Polikarpova (ISR).
Sindhu will start her Tokyo Games campaign on Sunday, July 25, against Israel’s Ksenia Olegovna Polikarpova.
