Men’s doubles world no. 10 Chirag Shetty still finds it hard to swallow the results he and his partner Satwiksairaj Rankireddy got at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

Shetty told TOI, “We knew from the beginning that our group was tough with the world no. 3s and 1s and Great Britain there. But to go out despite winning two matches did hurt us. People (Lee Yang & Wang Chi Lin) whom we beat, to see them win gold was difficult.”

Shetty is determined to make amends in the upcoming major tournaments of the BWF calendar.

“There are a lot of positives to take from the Olympics, we played well game-wise and there are a lot of tournaments coming up like the Sudirman Cup, Thomas Cup and the World Championships in December. So we will look to do well in these events and hopefully we can come back with a medal,” he said.
