Shining star Sindhu becomes the DIAMOND girl of India.
PV Sindhu has won silver mendal in Women’s single Badminton. Sindhu, tenth in the global rankings, lost to Spain’s Carolina Marin, who ranked No 1, 21-12, 12-21, 15-21 to settle for silver.
However, the Indian should be proud of her performance as she played some of her finest badminton in Rio Olympics to take silver medal.
Without a doubt, it is an exceptional achievement for the 21-year-old badminton player at her first Olympic games, coming as it did with five victories in a row, the past two of which came over the world No 2 and No 5 respectively.
Sindhu, fought during the initial exchanges, in certain against some wonderful drop shots from the left-hander. Down 3-7, then 5-8 and 5-9, then 10-13.
Sindhu never gave up, but her opponent’s experience was simply too much to be overhauled.
