Game Time: Is PV Sindhu India’s greatest athlete?

On Sunday, PV Sindhu became the first Indian to win a gold at the Badminton World Federation championships – a feat that has eluded Prakash Padukone, P Gopi Chand and Saina Nehwal. Sindhu defeated Japan’s Nozomi Okuhara in a clash that lasted just 38 minutes. In this episode, Daksh and Indian Express’ national sports editor, Sandeep Dwivedi are joined by badminton correspondent, Shivani Naik to breakdown the rise of PV Sindhu. Naik explains how Sindhu managed to dominate the Chinese players, the role of her coach (Gopi Chand) in her success and how she has transformed herself into perhaps India’s greatest athlete.
