PV Sindhu has finally had her taste of glory as she won the bronze medal after beating He Bingjiao from China in straight sets in the bronze medal match and became the first Indian woman to win two individual Olympic medals in two consecutive Olympic Games. 


The ace shuttler is now alongside ex-Olympian Sushil Kumar with silver from Rio 2016 and a bronze from Tokyo 2021. The ace shuttler played some great badminton, beating most of her counterparts in straight sets and bringing India closer to the second medal after Mirabai Chanu's thrilling silver on the second day of Tokyo 2020. 


Sindhu's gameplay was unbeatable until her victory against the 7th seed Japanese Yamaguchi in the quarterfinal. After that, she was handed a loss by the World and Olympic No. 1, Tzu Ying Tai, in the semifinal, leaving her with a shot at final glory in the Bronze medal game against the Chinese. The Hyderabadi shuttler definitely has a place in the history books of Indian Sports but is keen to come back stronger and reclaim the World No.1 title in major tournaments before the Paris 2024 Olympics. 


The Hyderabadi, though, missed her mark in just one game has got heads turning along with Mirabai Chanu as to how good women have been this year for the country and is hoping to be joined by the Women's hockey team who have their quarterfinal, Kamalpreet Kaur's Discus Throw final and Lovlina Borgohain and her semifinal bout in the coming days.
