PV Sindhu has been training separately since February 2021 with coach Park Tae Sang at another stadium, while the rest of the Indian team train at the Gopichand Academy.

Speaking to Outlook, she said, “I think I am prepared and will not miss Gopichand Sir in Tokyo. I am putting in about five-six hours with Park and Suchitra (her trainer) every day to keep myself ready for the Games.“

“Look, as athletes we have to live in the present. It’s good to have change. You get to learn different things from different coaches. At the end of the day, a player has to assimilate and decide what is best for him or her,” she added.
