Sindhu, who became the first Indian woman to win two Olympic medals when she won bronze in Tokyo in 2021 and silver in Rio in 2016, is recuperating from a stress fracture on her left ankle sustained during the 2022 Commonwealth Games, where she won gold.
The gold medalist at the 2019 BWF World Tour Finals practiced for around 30 minutes with instructor Park Tae-Sang, who was delivering particular directions to her sparring partners at the school. The workout included physical training with a focus on gaining a feel for the court, as well as occasional smashes and clean net clearances.
“I’ve begun training, but I’m still not at 100% match fitness.” “I’m resting because it’s not easy to come back after a hiatus and then an injury,” Sindhu said. Coach Tae-Sang, who put Sindhu through her paces during the training session, said that the ace shuttler plans to return to the Malaysia Open in January 2023.
“We don’t want to hurry Sindhu’s recovery, and we’re aiming for the BWF World Tour Finals Malaysia Open in January.” “She has begun training and is moving well on the floor, but it is critical that she does not strain too much,” the coach stated.
“It’s even more vital not to hurry back since the Olympic Qualifiers are in May next year, and that’s our major aim.” “Right now, the emphasis is on injury recuperation and restoring full fitness,” Park remarked.
Sindhu completed a successful 2022 season with winning her first BWF World Tour Finals Commonwealth Games singles gold medal, as well as the Syed Modi International, the Swiss Open, and the Singapore Open.
