After a disappointing loss in the semi-final to Chinese Taipei’s Tai Tzu Ying, India’s star shuttler and reigning World Champion PV Sindhu will have her eyes on the bronze medal when she takes on her Chinese opponent, He Bingjiao. If Sindhu emerges victorious, this will be her second Olympic medal after the silver medal in Rio Olympics where she lost to Carolina Marin in the final.
There will be two quarter-final events as well. Boxer Satish Kumar will lock horns with Uzbekistan’s Bakhodir Jalolov in men’s super heavy category. Also, Manpreet Singh-led India will look to continue their winning run in the tournament with a win over Great Britain in the quarter-final. India faced only one defeat in the group stage against Australia. Equestrian Fouaad Mirza will be seen in action again in the Eventing Cross Country team and individual event.
