Ace Indian table tennis player G. Sathiyan has locked his eyes on three achievements: winning an Olympic medal, breaking into the world’s top-10 and beating a top Chinese player.

“It is going to be very challenging to win an Olympic medal in Tokyo. It’s a herculean task for sure,” Sathiyan told Sportstar during an Instagram live session on Wednesday.   

“Even the [2018] Asian Games was a herculean task for us. After winning the Commonwealth Games, we never expected to go and win an Asian Games medal,”

Sathiyan’s ambitions go beyond Tokyo. He believes a strong run in Tokyo will provide a great platform for the 2024 Olympics.

The Chennai-born paddler knows the importance of beating the top-ranked Chinese players because that will get people talking.
