Grateful,” Manika Batra captioned the video on Twitter. Manika is among the 88-member batch of Indian contingent that left for Tokyo on July 17 for the upcoming Olympic Games.

“I am very happy that I have qualified for the Olympics. It is a very big thing to represent the country, I will give my best in both doubles and singles event,” Manika told ANI before departing for Tokyo.

Sports Minister Anurag Thakur along with IOA president Narinder Dhruv Batra and other officials wished the Olympic-bound Indian athletes good luck.
