Ahead of the mega event, several top athletes are sharing a glimpse of their preparations on social media. Ace Indian tennis star and six-time Grandslam champion Sania Mirza also joined the bandwagon and shared a video of herself in India’s Olympic kit on Instagram. In the video, Mirza can be seen grooving on American rapper Doja Cat’s latest hit ‘Kiss Me More’.

Several fans also wished Sania luck for the Tokyo Olympics. “All the best for the Olympics ma’am,” the comment read. The user also used two blue heart emojis in the post. India’s Olympic kit for the mega event in Tokyo was launched by Indian Olympic Association (IOA) last month.
Ahead of Olympics, Sania also interacted with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi during a live video conference and shed light on her preparations for the marquee event. The PM hailed Sania for making India proud over the years. He also asked Sania about the efforts one has to put in to become a champion.
Responding to his query, Sania said, “Now, young children believe they can become big players in tennis. They need hard work, support and dedication. Destiny plays a role but nothing will happen without hard work and talent.”
Sania last played for India in Wimbledon 2021. She will represent India in Tokyo Olympics alongside Ankita Raina in the women’s doubles event.
