No problems with Gopichand or parents: PV Sindhu

Badminton Champion PV Sindhu had announced on Monday via Instagram that she had travelled to the UK to work on her nutrition and recovery and added that she had been there for 10 days. She is likely to spend another 60 or so days there. Following her post, social media has been active with assumptions about her reason to leave the National Camp for Olympic hopefuls.

Some claim that she had left due to problems at home since none of her parents accompanied her to the UK, which has happened for the first time. Before her fast departure from Hyderabad, she had reportedly informed the Pullela Gopichand academy that she won’t be returning for 8-10 weeks. Responding to the gossips and half-truths, Sindhu’s father PV Ramana told PTI that there was no tension in the family. He added that Sindhu left, as she was not getting enough practice at the national camp.

I came to London a few days back to work on my nutrtion and recovery needs with GSSI.Infact I have come here with the consent of my parents and absolutely they were no family rifts in this regard. Why will I have problems/issues with my parents who have sacrificed their lives for my sake. Mine is a very close knitted family and they will always support me. I am in touch with my family members everyday. Also I do not have any issues with my coach Mr Gopichand or the training facilities at the academy. Mr M. Ratnakar the sports reporter of TOI who is spreading false news should know the facts first before writing them. If he doesn’t stop, I may have to resort to legal proceedings against him. @toi_sports @gopichandpullela
