I didn't like gymnastics initially. But he kept saying I'm good at it. Then the gold medals in nationals started coming. I started loving the sport and its movements. After every hard day, there was a medal as prize." (womenexclusive.in, 01 Jun 2019; indianexpress.com, 25 Feb 2018)

Additional information
General
COMMONWEALTH COMEBACK
She competed at the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, Scotland, four years after being ineligible to compete at the 2010 edition in Delhi, India, because she was too young. "I wanted to be part of the Commonwealth Games in 2010, I had even qualified, but because I was underage [age 14], I couldn't take part. Right after that I started training for the next Commonwealth Games." (deccanchronicle.com, 20 Jun 2014)

SUPPORT
Her father Narayan Reddy sold his house to help her become a gymnast. He passed away in 2012. She competed at the 2012 Senior National Championships in Udaipur, India, a few months after his death, winning gold in vault and beam. "I told my father that since he had sacrificed so much for my training, I was not going to settle for anything less than gold. Life was very cosy as long as my father was around. After my father's death, I lost my focus for a week or so. I didn't know what to do and even contemplated quitting the sport. But my sister and brother-in-law took care of me and provided me the support which I needed then." (bookofachievers.com, 14 Aug 2020; thehansindia.com, 05 Jan 2019; dnaindia.com, 18 Apr 2012)
