PV Sindhu clinching her fist and accompanying it with as passionate a come on as youll ever see from an Indian athlete remains one of the takeaway images from the Rio Olympics for Indian fans. Stephon Tuitt Jersey .Her aggression was deemed instrumental, by pundits and fellow professionals alike, in her winning key moments in big matches en route to her historic silver medal at the Games.Speaking exclusively to ESPN in Mumbai, Sindhu and her coach Pullela Gopichand, two of the quietest people youd know off the court, tried to explain how a sense of controlled aggression had to be instilled in the badminton star in order to develop a killer instinct.There was this incident when he (Gopichand) made me stand in between the eight courts at the academy and he just said Shout, says Sindhu. Everybody was just staring at me. And Im just standing there and he says shout. And then I started crying because he yelled at me and said unless and until you shout, Im not going to let you play.So everyone kept looking at me and that became quite an embarrassing moment, but from there I feel my aggression went high and it kept going.Gopichand highlights the importance of understanding the use of smart and calculated aggression and how it helps an athlete in pressure situations.Well, I think on the big stage it is important to be aggressive when you need to be aggressive. But it needs to be smart enough to still be aware of what is happening around, its not blind aggression or anger which goes in but its the kind of aggression which is smart, which is calculated and which is as per plan.And I think somewhere down the line when you need that killer instinct to close down matches, its important to be assertive and aggressive. Its part of sport, we all need to do it, pushed against the wall, we push to fight back and I think we should get that thing across and it at times it should be visible as well, said Gopichand.Sindhus life since returning from Rio has been about shuttling from one function to another in her honour. At just 21, shes gone about collecting national awards, government-allotted land, approximately Rs. 14 crore (USD 2.1 Million) in prize money and a BMW among other things, in less than a fortnight.While Sindhu admits that life has changed and that responsibilities are high from now given all eyes will be on her when she plays, Gopichand believes that the overnight stardom will have little bearing on the road ahead.From an outside perspective things might change, but for us its important to stay connected, he said. The reality is she needs to get back and become stronger in every area of her game. Shes young, shes 21, and already has 2 world championships. Commonwealth, Asian Games and an Olympic medal to her credit. So she has a huge potential, and hopefully when we look at her career in 8 years time, we should see many more medals and titles.Sindhu credits her coach and the support of her family for her success.No matter what you achieve in life, dont ever forget your coach and what theyve sacrificed for you. My father also tells me no matter how high you go, you always have to be down to earth.Gopichand also acknowledged the contribution of Sindhus father, Ramanna, a former captain of the Indian national volleyball team himself, who accompanied Sindhu daily for several months, riding her twice a day on a scooter to his academy in Gachibowli, Hyderabad, nearly 30 KMs from Sindhus residence.I must thank Ramanna, he was there with Sindhu for training everyday at 4 am, picking up shuttle cocks that I kept smashing when we were trying to work on a particular shot, Gopi said.Former India Hockey Captain Viren Rasquinha, who is the CEO of Olympic Gold Quest (OGQ), the NGO which has sponsored Sindhu since she was 15, said that her parents are an example for parents of athletes across India.OGQ was also instrumental in ensuring Sindhus parents and coaching staff could travel with her for major events, including the Rio Olympics. I know as a sportsman how important it is at times to have coaches, mentors, guides and even family at a major tournament, its certainly something we prioritize and were delighted its made such a difference. said Rasquinha.In spite of the extended celebration surrounding Sindhus win, both player and coach have already retuned to normalizing life. While partial training has begun, Sindhu admits she went on a spree of eating junk-food and ice-creams since her return, but said that its time now to get back to work.The Olympics is once in four years so she has every reason to celebrate. But I think its important now to get back quickly and focus on the tournaments ahead, said Gopichand. Mike Mitchell Jersey .ca looks back at the stories and moments that made the year memorable. Eli Rogers Jersey .
