The doubles badminton player Jawala Gutta from Hyderabad thanked her well wishers today for standing by her side at the time of crisis. She said, “I am very happy that the order of the honourable judge was in our favour. Happy that I am allowed to play. My whole life I have done nothing but played badminton. I just hope I continue to do that and bring laurels to the country, and make everyone proud,”
She also thanked her doubles partner Ashwini Ponnappa and her coaches “I am thankful to Clean Sports India (CSI) who openly lend its support and to Ashwini, who was also going through a lot of stress because it was not only my entry that was withdrawn from the Denmark Open but also hers. So I am really glad that she understood me and stood by me. That makes me really very strong. In fact, I want to thank (Banga Beats coach) Vimal Kumar Sir, (coach Syed Mohammad) Arif Sir, all my friends and everyone stood who by me. Even one line messages from them were enough to give me strength to win the battle,”
