India had perhaps its best day at the Tokyo Olympics with star shuttler and the ever-dependent PV Sindhu winning a bronze medal in women's singles badminton on Sunday, August 1. Sindhu had lost out on a place in the finals on Saturday with a crushing loss to Tai Tzu Ying but she staged a remarkable comeback on Sunday, winning the bronze medal by beating He Bingjiao in straight games and becoming the first Indian woman and third overall from the country to win two Olympic medals in individual sports. The other good news for India came from the men's hockey team, which defeated Great Britain 3-1 to enter the Olympics semifinals for the first time in 49 years. Also, despite boxer Satish Kumar losing his quarter-final match to Bakhodir Jalolov, the entire country is proud of his achievement because he chose to compete in the match despite having multiple stitches on his forehead and chin.
