India’s PV Sindhu defeated He Bing Jiao of China to win the women’s singles bronze medal at Tokyo Olympics. With this win, Sindhu became the first Indian woman to win two Olympic individual medals. Sindhu dominated Bing Jiao 21-13, 21-15 as she shook off the disappointment of losing the semi-final to Chinese Taipei’s Tai Tzu Ying on Saturday. She had won silver at Rio Olympics in 2016 after losing to Spain’s Carolina Marin in the final. Beside Sindhu, wrestler Sushil Kumar is the only other Indian athlete to win two individual medals at the Olympic Games.
