Fitness key to medals in 2018, says Srikanth
World No. 3 shuttler Kidambi Srikanth today said he would look to stay fit next year in order to have a fair chance of clinching medals for the country in a hectic season.
“There are lots of positives to take from 2017. Next year would be a big year with too many important tournaments lined up and it would be important for me to stay fit,” said Srikanth on the sidelines of a felicitation program organised by the Andra Pradesh government here.
“If I stay fit then I will be able to give my 100 per cent and only then I will have better chance of winning medals for the country in important tournaments such as Commonwealth Games, Asian Games and World Championship,” added the Indian, who clinched four Super Series titles in 2017.
The duo smiled and posed multiple times for the huge turn out of people, who wanted to capture the moment with their cell phones.
