World championship bronze medallist, B. Sai Praneeth, says when the focus is on winning a medal in the Tokyo Olympics, every other issue gets blurred automatically.
“I always believe once you enter a major event, the focus has to be on doing well backed by the right preparations. And, that is what we have been doing with no tournaments for a long time in the run-up to the Olympics,” 28-year-old Sai Praneeth said in a chat with The Hindu.
“I am aware that I need to create one or two major upsets to be able to realise my dream of an Olympic medal” he said.
“Obviously, the focus has been on fitness and I am the kind of a player who if I feel I am fit then I can comfortably play my natural game straight away. That way, I am really pleased with the fitness level going into the Tokyo Games,” he said.
