Indian badminton player PV Sindhu has clinched the bronze medal in the Women’s Single category in Badminton. With this historic win, she has become the first woman to win two Olympic medals. Sindhu fully dominated the bronze medal match and won comfortably against the Chinese Shuttler He Bing Jiao.
On Saturday, Sindhu was all set to play against the world number one Tai Tzu of Chinese Taipei in the semi-final match which she lost 18-21, 12-21 . Though she got out of the final race, the experienced badminton player defeated He Bing Jiao to get her hands on the prestigious bronze medal. It is a known fact that Sindhu had also brought home a silver medal in the 2016 Rio Olympics and this was her second medal.
In fact, this is also India’s second medal in the ongoing Tokyo Olympics after Mirabai Chanu brought home a Silver Medal.
Twitter Hails PV Sindhu
As expected, the Twitter world went crazy after PV Sindhu created history and all the fans went to social media to express their happiness and also congratulation to the medal winner.
