21 year old PV Sindhu has become the first Indian woman to win an Olympic silver medal. At the Rio Olympics she settled for the white medal after being beaten 21-19, 12-21, 15-21 by World No.1 Carolina Marin of Spain. The Hyderbadi started on a positive note but after 3-3, the Spaniard dominated the proceedings and took four consecutive points to lead 7-3 and then 9-5. Despite not being able to clench the gold medal, PV Sindhu won everyone’s respect. Irrespective of the colour of the medal, Sindhu emerged the apple of the eye for every Indian citizen. Her game brought the nation to a standstill with people glued to television sets.
