The 18-year-old long jump prodigy Shaili Singh on Monday marked her return in style as she clinched silver at the ongoing 36th National Games.

"I was demoralised after missing the U-20 Worlds. My coach (Robert Bobby George) helped me throughout. It would have been another chance for me to win a medal. As a sportsperson, I am coming back and it has made me more strong," Shaili told The Bridge about her comeback.

After a break due to a toe injury, which forced her to miss the U-20 World Athletics Championships this year, she secured the medal with a jump of 6.28m, far behind her personal best, but still her seasons'.

The U-20 World Championships 2021 silver medalist is looked at as the next big thing in Indian Athletics ever since she came into the scene. We got in a chat with the upcoming star. Watch the video!
