He definitely has a lot of expectations upon his shoulders as he is the only one representing his nation in this competition. But he does not take this as pressure and instead uses it to motivate himself.

Gopichand believes that he has the ability to be one of the medal contenders. His performances in the last few years have been quite impressive. In 2019 he created the record of becoming the first Indian male shuttler who won a medal at the badminton world championships since Prakash Padukone.

When he was asked about his form and winning a medal for the country he said, Definitely, I am looking to win a medal. But in a tournament like this, you can’t predict the results. This tournament is different. No player has much match practice because of the pandemic. Everybody will be coming without many games under the belt. I will definitely give my best and I am confident that I can win one if I do my part. But the result is not in your hands in a situation like this.”

The participation of Indian athletes is absolutely incredible this year. More than 100 Indian athletics are participating in Tokyo 2020 and it will be e an absolute honor for the athletes to bring glory to their nation by victories.
