2nd Game: Sindhu 8-6 Bingjao

The rallies begin to pick much more momentum. Bingjao, not having much luck at the net, is now going back to the strategy of long points. Sindhu crashes a cross court forehand, which leaves the Chinese momentarily floored. Now the Chines hits back! Fantastic maneouvring of the court from her. Now Sindhu is floored.

But no harm done.Hockey: Early chance for India in Q1! Britain lose the ball in the middle but quickly defend in numbers to stop India from securing an early lead.

Sindhu vs He Bingjao: What to expect

There’s a million reasons to wake up on Sunday shiny, new and bright. India doesn’t have a surfeit of medals, so PV Sindhu really can’t afford to mope over lost gold when there’s a bronze to be won. She has a chance to become the first Indian woman with two Olympic medals, writes Shivani Naik.

Indias Boxing campaign

What to say about our boxing campaign so far! Our male boxers have had a largely disappointing show. Amit Panghal topping the disappointment charts. Vikas Krishan, while not much was expected from him, a little bit more of a fight on what should be his Olympic swansong could have been expected. Our female boxers have done better on the whole. All eyes now on Lovlina Borgohain. Will it be a gold, silver or bronze for her?

HUGE day for Indian hockey!

While it is indeed a HUGE day for Indian hockey, Viren Rasquinha is slightly mistaken here. India did not play the Semifinal in 1980 either. There was no semifinal held in the 1980 Games. The last time India played a semifinal was in 1972 Munich.
