Vishnu Saravanan, one of the three sailors who recently qualified for the Tokyo Olympics, says staying calm like former India cricket captain MS Dhoni will be key during the upcoming Tokyo Olympics.

Saravanan (Laser Standard), Nethra Kumanan (Laser Radial) and Vishnu Ganapathy and Varun Thakkar (Skiff 49er) had recently qualified for the Olympics, that start on July 23, through the Mussanah Open Sailing Championships in Oman, an Asian and African Olympic Qualifier.

In a virtual media interaction, Saravanan said he will be happy to finish in the top 50.

"There's no pressure. We are young and have room to learn more. The whole nation has so much hope on us but we have to be cool-minded like MS Dhoni and do our job," he said.

Nethra said the Olympic Games will be great learning curve.
