Expecting a better badminton medal haul at 2020 Olympics: Gopichand

TIL Desk Sports/ India have got one medal in badminton from each of the last two Olympics, but current national coach Pullela Gopichand is confident that the Tokyo Games next year will witness a better haul. Saina Nehwal had bagged a bronze at the 2012 Olympics in London while P.V. Sindhu got a silver in the women’s singles final at the 2016 Games.

Gopichand asserted that he expects at least one of his wards to win gold in Tokyo while expecting better results from the men’s squad.”The Tokyo Games will be a big event and every Olympics we have done better than the previous one. I hope this time we have a better medal than previous years and more medals than we have managed previously,” Gopichand told.

“Among the boys, never before we have had players with such high rankings. I believe that with this current batch of boys, we have a good chance for a medal in Tokyo and in the future,” he added.
