NEW DELHI: PV Sindhu has won India's second medal of the 2016 Rio Olympics, but it isn't the one she, her coach P Gopichand and all those who tuned into the gold medal women's singles badminton match at the Riocentro on Friday wished for. Sindhu, tenth in the global rankings, lost to Spain's Carolina Marin, ranked No 1, 21-12, 12-21, 15-21 to settle for silver.
Still proud of her.

Congratulations Sindhu. May her achievement inspire many Indian girls to achieve many feats in sports. She has made the country proud.
But Sindhu created shivers in Marin and as a result, it was not an easy win for world number one player.
superb fight ..she is a world class player .
