PV Sindhu’s road to success at the Badminton World Championships is more than just her gameplay. Her exceptional fitness regimen played a key role in her sheer dominance against Nozomi Okuhara in the final.

She thrashed the Japanese in just 37 minutes winning 21-7, 21-7 in Basel to become the first Indian to win gold at the World's.

The 24-year-old had spoken about the importance of physical and mental fitness after her historic victory.

The Suchitra Badminton Academy in Hyderabad, where Sindhu trained while preparing for the World's, had posted the video on their social media handles on the day Sindhu had won the final.

Industrialist Anand Mahindra on Tuesday posted a video of her training in Hyderabad and commended her for inspiring a 'generation of budding Indian sportspersons'.

"Brutal. I'm exhausted just watching this. But now there's no mystery about why she's the World Champ. A whole generation of budding Indian sportspersons will follow her lead & not shrink from the commitment required to get to the top..." he tweeted.

Sindhu had thanked her fitness trainer Srikanth Verma along with coaches Kim Ji Hyun and Pullela Gopichand for the victory.
