STATE TIMES NEWSNEW DELHI: Chief national badminton coach Pullela Gopichand expects Indian athletes to claim an unparalleled double digit medal haul at the Olympics and has declared world champion P V Sindhu as one of the favourites to win a gold. India will be fielding its biggest-ever Olympic contingent — more than 120 athletes — at the Tokyo Olympics which begins on Friday.“I do believe that this time around, we would have, hopefully, India’s biggest medal tally till now. We could surpass what the Indian team did in London which is six medals and hopefully get to double digit is what I am hoping for,” Gopichand said.“Because there has been a lot of support and help from the government and I just wish that with that kind of a support, which we have got, I think getting more medals strengthens the hands of the people related to sports.“I do believe that whether it is shooting, wrestling, boxing or Mirabai Chanu in weightlifting, I think they have a lot of chances,” he said during a webinar announcing the collaboration of Heartfulness Institute and Dhyana, the official meditation partner of Indian Olympic contingent.
