Asian Games 2018 in Jakarta And Medal Tally Day 10: Saina Nehwal, PV Sindhu created history by winning medals in the ongoing 18th Asian Games 2018. Saina won bronze, whereas Sindhu bagged silver. The sport of badminton was introduced in the Asian Games in 1962 and this is the first time India has won a medal at the event.
Saina lost to World No 1 Tai Tzu Ying in her semifinal match, whereas Sindhu lost to Tai in the finals in straight games. But, Twitter congratulated the two shuttlers from India for creating history.
Here is how social sphere reacted.
Earlier, World No 1 Tai Tzu Ying beat PV Sindhu 21-13, 21-16 in the ongoing 18th Asian Games 2018. PV Sindhu bagged silver to take India’s medal tally to 44.
The only thing that would be disappointing for Indian fans would be to see their Rio medallist again lose a final.
