While she also stated that the feeling of winning back-to-back medals at the Games is yet to sink in, she confirmed that she would be playing in Paris 2024 and would be giving her all. "It is yet to sink in, but I am enjoying the moment. It is a huge thing for me to win back-to-back medals at Olympics. I am sure it will inspire others and take sports to greater heights. I will play the 2024 Paris Olympics, but there is a lot of time," she added, reports PTI.

On being asked how much pressure was she under this time compared to the last time, she said, "2016 Olympics was very different, it was my first Olympics, there were no expectations. It was a medal to remember because it changed my life. This time there were a lot of expectations, and getting a bronze is again different. So, there was a lot more pressure this time."
