I carried it all the way through and it means the world to me, just as this medal means everything for me to represent our nation. The Tokyo Olympics has been an experience that I will not forget, from preparing for 5 years to stepping in the medal podium- each moment is forever etched with me."

"It's been a day and I still have no words to describe the feeling of holding an Olympic medal, it's always a dream come true each time. It's never just been a solo journey for me to get where I am, I am incredibly thankful to the people in my life who have continuously been with me through it all", she wrote.

Sindhu was in fine form during her run to the finals, defeating Akane Yamaguchi in the quarterfinal in straight games. But her four-match unbeaten streak run came to an end in a heartbreaking defeat to world number one Tai Tzu Ying in the semifinal.
