The Gold-medalist said to the PTI, “I can’t describe this feeling, I’m feeling like I’m on top of the world. It’s unexplainable. I’m so happy I could be the one to contribute it. Hopefully, there’s a lot of medals more to come.”

She also added, “I’m so happy I could be the one to contribute it. Hopefully, there’s a lot of medals more to come. I was just saying one thing, that I have to take one shot at a time. There’s nothing else matters now, just take one shot at a time and just finish it.”
