PV Sindhu creates history !

PV Sindhu scripted history by becoming the first Indian woman to collect two medals at the Olympics after defeating China's He Bingjiao 21-13, 21-15 in the bronze medal match on Sunday.

With this win, Sindhu becomes the second Indian after Sushil Kumar to win two individual Olympic medals. She had won a silver in the last Olympics in Rio after losing in the final to Carolina Marin.

Sindhu didn't drop a single game at this year's Olympics in the five matches that she won and her ten match wins at the Olympics are the most for an Indian badminton player. 

"It makes me feel really happy because I've worked hard for so many years. I had a lot of emotions going through me - should I be happy that I won bronze or sad that I lost the opportunity to play in the final?," the 26-year-old said after the match.

Sindhu rose to fame at the international level when she won the Asian Championships bronze medal in 2014. She had a dream year as she went on to win bronze medals at the Commonwealth Games and the Asian Games. In fact, Sindhu also won her first of 5 World Championship medals in 2014.

Sindhu was not among the favourites for finishing on the podium at the 2016 Olympic Games but the then 21-year-old had a dream run to the final where she lost to Marin and finished with the silver medal.

Sindhu was also the first Indian badminton player to win a silver medal at the Olympics. Saina Nehwal became the first Indian to win a badminton medal at the Olympics when she finished with a bronze in Beijing in 2008.

Sindhu won the Commonwealth Games gold in 2018 and followed it up with a historic gold medal at the World Championships in 2019, becoming the first India to do so.
