Tokyo Olympics was special for the Indian professional badminton player, PV Sindhu as she won the bronze medal for India. She became the first Indian woman to win two medals in the Olympics.
PV Sindhu had played some dominant games in this 2020 Tokyo Olympics. She defeated Akane Yamaguchi, a Japanese badminton player in the quarter-finals with a score of 21-13, 22-20. After this dominating game, Sindhu qualified for the semifinal match against Tai Tzu-Ying. However, she lost against the Taiwanese badminton player but still had a chance to win the medal later in the bronze medal match.
PV Sindhu was against the Chinese badminton player, He Bingjiao in the bronze medal match, where she clinched the medal with another controlled performance. Thus, this was a special moment for her, winning the medal and becoming the first Indian woman to win two Olympic medals. She won a silver medal in the 2016 Rio Olympics after defeating Nozomi Okuhara in the semifinal match. With that win, she booked her place in the finals of the Rio Olympics and her medal was also confirmed. She seemed really happy about her achievement of becoming the first Indian woman to win two Olympic medals and she also talked about it in her interview with IndiaToday.
“I mean, I have no words yet. It’s a very proud moment for me and it’s just great to be able to win another medal for India. And that feeling hasn’t completely sunk yet,” PV Sindhu said in an interview with IndiaToday.
She also said that she can’t stop thinking about her this achievement. “It’s a beautiful feeling and I keep thinking. “I just won a medal at the Olympics. I did it again,” she added.
