TOKYO, Aug 1 (Reuters) – India’s PV Sindhu followed up her silver from 2016 with a women’s badminton singles bronze at Tokyo 2020 on Sunday, paying tribute to her fans after beating China’s He Bing Jiao 21-13 21-15.
“A medal for the country, and at the Olympics is not so easy,” an emotional Sindhu said after the nearly hour-long match. “A lot of Indian fans showed me that love and support and I’m very, very thankful to each one of them.”
It is Sindhu’s second medal at the Olympics after she won a silver medal at the 2016 Rio Olympics. She became the first Indian woman to win two Olympic medals.
