PV Sindhu wins bronze medal for India at Tokyo Olympics
Ace Indian shuttler PV Sindhu created history on Sunday by winning the second bronze medal for India at the ongoing Tokyo Olympics.
Sindhu won in straight games against China's He Bing Jiao to add a bronze medal to the silver she had won in the Rio Olympics in 2016.
She won the match 21-13, 21-15 to become the first Indian woman ever to win two individual Olympics medals. She had lost the final of the women's singles event at the 2016 Rio Olympics to settle for a silver medal.
The third-place match between Sindhu and Jaio witnessed Sindhu's top-notch performance where she dominated the game from the very start, relentlessly attacking and capitalising on points.
With Sindhu's bronze medal, India has now won a total of 2 medals 1 silver and 1 bronze, and will add another medal to the cap (with Lovlina Borgohain assured a medal too).
Sindhu had lost the semi-finals against T Y Tai of Chinese Taipei earlier and met Jaio for the third-place match.
