World Badminton Championship 2019: PV Sindhu Makes History, Becomes First Indian to Win Gold

Author : Odisha Today Bureau | Posted on: 2019-08-26

P V Sindhu became the 1st Indian to win badminton World Championships gold by beating familiar rival Nozomi Okuhara of Japan in a lop-sided final on Sunday (25th Aug).


 

The Indian won 21-7 21-7 in the summit clash that lasted just 38 minutes. Two years after being robbed off the gold by Okuhara in an epic 110-minute final at Glasgow that went down as one of the greatest battles in badminton history, Sindhu finally exorcised the ghost of that heart-wrenching loss with a completely dominating win over the same opponent.



 

Moreover, it was Sindhu’s 5th World Championships medal — joint most for a woman singles player with former Olympics and world champion Zhang Ning of China — to go with the 2 successive silvers and a couple of bronze medals.


 

Furthermore, Sindhu has also won a silver in 2016 Rio Games, a silver at Gold Coast Commonwealth Games, an Asian Games silver at Jakarta and the BWF World Tour Finals last year.
