World No 2 Indian badminton ace Saina Nehwal wants to be injury-free in the run-up to the Rio Olympics; star shuttler says she will try her best to win a gold at the tournament
Bangalore: World No 2 Indian badminton ace Saina Nehwal wants to be injury-free in the run-up to the Rio Olympics.
"Last time, I was very fortunate to get bronze medal. So, hopefully, this time, if I play, I hope to get at least one medal for the country. I hope to be injury-free to participate in Rio Olympics," Saina, who is recovering from a foot injury, told PTI.
Asked whether Indians can expect a gold from her at Rio, Saina said, "Let us see, I cannot predict. I am not God to predict what I am going to get, but I will work hard, and will do my best.”
Replying to a query, Saina said she took time off from some important tournaments because she would hardly get any chance to recover from injury post June.
