Sindhu trounces Bing Jiao for Olympics bronze

Pusarla V Sindhu won the women’s singles badminton bronze medal play-off on Sunday, beating China’s He Bing Jiao 21-13, 21-15 to become only the second Indian to win two medals at the Olympics.

The 26-year-old reigning World champion was just too good for the Chinese as she added to the silver she won at the 2016 Rio Games.

Wrestler Sushil Kumar was the first and only other Indian to win two Olympic medals, following his bronze at the 2008 Games in Beijing and silver at the 2012 edition in London.
