Making her comeback in the upcoming 2018 Commonwealth Games after being sidelined for long with an ankle injury, India ace shuttler PV Sindhu is anticipating the 2010 hosts to fetch a lot of medals at Gold Coast in Australia. Sindhu, who witnessed a slight sprain on her right ankle when she completed her last practise session at the Gopichand Academy on Tuesday, is likely to be declared full-fit prior to the 2018 Commonwealth Games in Australia. As per latest update on her right ankle sprain during practice last week, there were no signs of injury examined by the doctors either on the bone or ligament.
Despite spraining her ankle while sweating it out for the Commonwealth Games at Gold Coast, an optimistic Sindhu believes she will be fine before the Games commence. The current World No 3 in the BWF World Ranking wants to do her well in the Commonwealth Games and vowed to do the same. Sindhu was the first Indian woman to bag a Olympic silver medal in 2016 Rio Olympics and clinched bronze medal when she represented India in CWG. Preparation-wise, everything is going fine for Sindhu as the 22-year old Olympian will be eager to headline the Indian contingency at Gold Coast.
“Last time I had a bronze and this time I want to do well and give my best. I can’t tell a particular number but definitely we will get a lot of medals this time,” Sindhu was quoted as saying by news agency PTI. “Preparation wise everything has been going well for me. Of course, unfortunately, I sprained my ankle a bit but I think I should be fine by the time the Games starts, I hope I will be completely fit by then,” Sindhu said.
