“After a lot of uncertainty after a year of waiting, we will enter the Tokyo Olympics. Luckily, this is the best Olympic Games we have ever done in India. In terms of table tennis, it is the strongest team. Hopefully we come back with some medals,” Kamal told ANI.
“On that particular day, if we are able to join the opponents, we have the right chance. We had a tough Olympic qualifying, we overcame the 5th place in the World to qualify in the mixed double position. We can continue that, we can stay there,” he added.
Speaking about his form, Kamal said: “I’ve never been to the Olympics like that. This is the best Olympics. In terms of results and performance, in the 32nd world, I’m going to go to the Olympics at the highest level in the world. So I’m sure I’ll get some trouble. “.
127 athletes from 18 sports from India will travel to Tokyo.
This is the largest contingent he has sent to the Indian Olympics. The accumulated 69 events in the 18 sports disciplines that India will participate in are also the highest ever in the country.
