#ICYMI: Indian badminton wins in Saina-Sindhu faceoff
She is without doubt India’s trailblazer in women’s badminton. In the much-anticipated women’s singles summit clash at the Commonwealth Games, Saina beat PV Sindhu 21-18, 23-21 to win the gold. The 28-year-old also became the first Indian badminton player to win two Commonwealth Games gold medals. This was a tremendous win for the two-time CWG champion, who displayed pure grit, aggression and finesse to finish off Sindhu’s challenge in straight games and take home the women’s singles gold, eight years after her win in New Delhi.
