Badminton Star P.V. Sindhu to be India’s flag-bearer

March 27, 2018

P.V. Sindhu, silver medallist at the Rio Olympics, was on Saturday chosen as the flag-bearer of the Indian contingent for the opening ceremony of the 2018 Commonwealth Games (CWG) in Gold Coast, Australia. Sindhu will lead Indian badminton’s charge in the quest for glory at the 2018 CWG.

The Indian badminton star and World No.3 had to settle for bronze at the 2014 Glasgow CWG but this time around she is an outright favourite to take home the gold medal in the Women’s Singles event. The CWG opening ceremony will be held on April 4.

With Japan and China not part of the Commonwealth, Sindhu should have little problem in her bid to win a medal in Gold Coast. And depending on the draw, Sindhu’s stiffest test could be against compatriot Saina Nehwal.

Sindhu will also be key for India in the mixed team event. The mixed team event will be held for the first five days of badminton competition, with medals decided on April 9.
