Tokyo: Indian shuttler PV Sindhu won the bronze medal in women’s singles badminton at the Tokyo Olympics on Sunday. Sindhu defeated He Bing Jiao 21-13, 21-15 to became the first Indian woman to win two Olympic medals.

 

After winning, Sindhu said, “I was very young then (when she won silver in Rio). People did not have much expectations. I was a newcomer. This time, it was normal that there was more pressure, responsibility. This was very different because years have gone by. Experience wise, game-style wise, a lot has happened in between. Getting a medal here is a wonderful moment for me.”

“There’s a lot of effort that has gone into this. When it pays off, you feel like you are on Cloud 9,” said Sindhu.
