India finally secured its second medal of the Tokyo Olympics, with ace shuttler PV Sindhu bagging the bronze. She beat He Bingjiao of China in straight games 21-13 and 21-15 to attain her second Olympic medal.

The Indian dominated right from the start, with better judgement, followed by fast movements, as she comfortably outplayed the Chinese in the opening game. In the next game, she slightly changed her gameplay, applying more of an attacking measure, coming up with solid smashes, leaving her opponent clueless.
