Tokyo Olympics: PV Sindhu wins the bronze medal match to become the first Indian women to win two Olympic medals

PV Sindhu is now the first woman from India to win two medals at the Olympics after her victory at the bronze medal match against He Bing Jiao of China on Sunday.

PV Sindhu has now become the first woman from India who has gained two individual Olympic medals after she beat He Bing Jiao of China at the bronze medal fixture at the badminton event of the Tokyo Olympics. Sidhu had won the silver medal in 2016 at the Rio Olympics.

Sindhu guaranteed that her name will be enlisted in heroic letters in the annals of the history of India’s sports. She gained the victory on Sunday’s match with 21-13, 21-15 by her dominant performance throughout the game. She had unfortunately lost the women’s singles semi-final game against Tai Tzu-Ying of China.

The Indian professional governed the game from its opening by her influential smashes and overpowered the opponent. By this victory, she became the fourth woman to earn a singles medal in back to back Olympic Games.

After the Indian badminton player failed in the final match of the Rio Olympics, she grew better to become one of the consistent female athletes in the sport. Despite not being at the top position of the BWF rankings, she has appeared in nearly all the top events in the previous five years.
