India’s badminton player PV Sindhu won against He Bing Jiao in the women’s badminton singles, bagging her second Olympic medal.
With that, she took India’s medal tally at the Tokyo Games to three and created history as she became the first Indian woman to win two Olympic medals. In a statement, she said, “I’m on cloud nine. Worked hard for so many years. I think I’ve done really well. I had a lot of emotions going through me – should I be happy that I won bronze or sad that I lost the opportunity to play in the final?”
Meanwhile, India beat Great Britain 3-1 to go through to the semifinals of men’s hockey at the Olympics.
