India’s PV Sindhu has assured the country of another medal at the Rio Olympics.This time it’s at least a silver medal. The girl from Hyderabad beat Japanese Nozomi Okuhara by 21-19 21-10 in the semi-finals of the women’s badminton singles event at the Rio Olympics 2016.
She has now become the first Indian who enters into the final of a badminton event in the country’s Olympic history. She has to play with World No 1 Carolina Marin of Spain in the summit clash in order to bring India’s first gold medal in Rio Olympics.
Japanese Nozomi Okuhara, current World No 6 came into the match against Sindhu with a better head-to-head record of 3-1 in her favor.
Saina Nehwal was the last shuttler to win an Olympic medal for India, who clinched the bronze medal at the 2012 London Games.
If India’s PV Sindhu goes on to win the final against Marin, she will become the first Indian woman to win a gold medal at the Rio Olympics.
Brilliant game on display by PV Sindhu, Lets hope she does her best and keep up the momentum to bring India that elusive gold.
