Have you heard Shaili Singh has won a silver medal in the long jump? At this time, for India is news of success. Shaili Singh is only 17 years old, and she is the daughter of a single mother who works in tailoring. So, it is genuinely excellent news for her trainers Robert Bobby George and Anju George. They are hoping that Shaili will definitely win the Olympics and will make all the Indians proud.
She jumped 6.59 meters, and Sweden’s junior Maja Askag jumped 6.60 meters. Of course, there is a sharp difference between them. But Shaili’s success is making a good impression. Everyone is happy with her success as she belongs to a low-income family.
1cm. That’s what Shaili Singh falls short of gold by! She wins silver in the women’s long jump at the U-20 Athletics Worlds’ with a wind assisted clearance of 6.59m. Gold to Maja Askag of Sweden with a jump of 6.60m.But this won’t be the last we have heard of the girl from Jhansi pic.twitter.com/dOLb3iUf0b

Anju has said to the media,
“Shaili was brilliant. Of course, gold would have been prettier,” her coach Bobby George told Sportstar from Nairobi. “She was capable of even 6.65 or 6.70 this evening.”
She will indeed do better and also will win gold for India. Her effort is being appreciated by many people, and from Bangalore, her coaches also open their feelings on Shaili Singh.
Shaili is very young, and she ran without shoes. She is brave and capable of doing some goods. Shaili herself is also very happy, but she wants many things more to achieve, says,
“My mother told me before the final not to worry. She expected me to win gold. Next time, I will win gold. I wanted to hear the National Anthem being played at the stadium. As she is a single mother, it was difficult for her but my mother looked after me, my sister, and my brother,”
At this time, she has just completed her school education, and now she will join the college and will go for higher studies. She made all the Indians proud. We think we will see more achievements of Shaili Singh in the following years.
