For an Indian to dream of cracking those highest of echelons of Olympic sport - when equipment is niche, coaching is specialised, the sport isn't particularly easy to just lace up shoes and pick up - this qualification points to Bhavani's individual endeavour and her blazing ambition.

For the sabre fencer to win a berth, South Korea needed to finish in the top four of the team event of the World Cup in Budapest, which would automatically earn them a Tokyo qualification, allowing her to claim one of two individual spots reserved for Asia & Oceania via Adjusted Official Ranking (AOR).
