Keeping India’s Olympic medal hope alive, badminton player P V Sindhu on August 17 showed remarkable skills and grit to defeat world number two Wang Yihan of China.
Facing a tough competition in the Quarter Finals, Sindhu won a thrilling, but a tiring match against Wang so as to create an Olympic upset.
With this win, Sindhu has now become the second woman Indian badminton player to reach the semi-final of the Olympic Games.
Saina Nehwal is the only other Indian woman to achieve this feat; she had won Bronze at the 2012 London Games.
If she wins her next match, not only will she assure India of at least a silver medal, but also better Nehwal’s Bronze medal from 2012 Olympics.
