Indian badminton entered the Olympics’ medal fray when Saina Nehwal won the bronze medal in London Olympics 2012. In Rio Olympics 2016, all the shuttlers have have started the individuals’ event well and have qualified for the next round. Contrastingly, the women’s pair has exited the tournament and men’s pair hasn’t started on a good note.
This time around, India has pinned her medal hopes on three talented shuttlers, all of them in individuals’ category. In the women’s category we have Saina Nehwal and P.V Sindhu and in men’s category Kidambi Srikanth to represent the Indian interests. While the doubles haven’t performed well so far, we can trust the individuals to beat the likes of China, Japan, South Korea and Indonesia and get us a medal at the least.
