Indian badminton player PV Sindhu made history by entering the final of the women’s singles event in Olympics after defeating Japan’s Nozomi Okuhara.
She beated Okuhara by 21-19, 21-10 in the semi-final. Her final showdown will be with World No.1 Carolina Marin. Soon after victory, Sindhu told NDTV: “My target is gold and I promise to play my heart out against Carolina Marin.”
This will be the first time India will ever contest in an Olympics Badminton final.
Earlier, Saina Nehwal had won a bronze in the London Olympics four years back.
