After the first 2 sets ended 21-19 & 12-21, Sindhu lost the 3rd set against Carolina Marin and had to settle for the silver🙌 in women's badminton. As was the case in the 2nd set👀, Marin raced off the blocks💨 in the 3rd set as well and ran off to a 6-1 lead. Sindhu looked shorn off the confidence😟 and fight she displayed in the first set but gradually came into her own👏. She reeled off 4 straight points to level the game at 9-9👍 and went into the break trailing 10-11. Marin once again started well🙆 after the break and went ahead 14-10. The Spaniard's mental strength came to the fore as she reeled off 4 points in a row to bring her 6 match points. Inevitably, she took the 3rd set 21-14 and won the Olympic gold🏅.
Well fought Sindhu❗ You have created history🎉, regardless of the result.
