New Delhi, Jan 16:
She may be India’s first and only woman wrestler to have won an Olympic medal but that does not seem enough for Sakshi Malik as she now aims to equal Sushil Kumar’s historic feat of winning two Olympic medals at the 2020 Tokyo Games.
“My aim is to equal Sushil Kumar’s historic feat by winning an Olympic medal at Tokyo in 2020. I am completely focussed to achieve that goal. I want to become a double Olympic medallist just like Sushil ji,” Sakshi said
“For the Olympics, one has to start his/her training four years in advance and I have already started my training accordingly,” she added.
The 24-year-old admitted that life has completely transformed after the Olympic medal and it felt good when people recognise her.
“Life has changed for good. People recognise me a lot more now and it gives a very good feeling. It also inspires me to do better.” (PTI)
