Well, we're short of words today. PV Sindhu has done the entire country proud by winning a Bronze - the 2nd medal for India at the Tokyo Olympics this year.

After losing to World #1, Tai Tzu Ying in the semi-final yesterday, PV Sindhu came back roaring today - determined to take home a bronze medal.
She dominated right from the start, making good use of her height and keeping herself calm throughout. Even though He Bing Jiao fought extremely well, Sindhu turned out to be too good for her. She eventually won two straight sets and took the game with ease.


We at Sportskeeda take this opportunity to congratulate PV Sindhu for her exceptional performance at the Tokyo Olympics. She surely deserved a medal after putting up such a splendid show.
