Want to change medal colour from silver to gold: Sindhu

Mumbai: Star India shuttler P V Sindhu today said she wants to change the colour of her Olympic medal from silver to gold at the 2020 Tokyo Games.
"I want to change the colour (of the medal) from silver to gold. I would be chasing my dream for that and definitely I hope I would do it," said the Hyderabad-based badminton player, who had finished second at the Rio Olympics, here.
Sindhu, who has achieved a career-high global ranking of 2, was made the brand ambassador of the tyre company, which is associated with the Olympic movement, last year.
Bridgestone today added four more Indian athletes - shuttler Kidambi Srikanth, London Olympics bronze medallist boxer MC Mary Kom and Rio Games bronze medallist grappler Sakshi Malik and steeplechaser Lalita Babar - to its worldwide brand ambassadors' list.
Srikanth, who reached a career-best world ranking of two last year after clinching as many as four titles, said he too wants to win a medal at Tokyo after reaching the quarterfinals at Rio Games.
