Olympic silver medalist PV Sindhu has been nominated for the prestigious Padma Bhushan award by the Sports Ministry on Monday. Sindhu has risen to the number two spot in the women’s singles ranking after her stupendous run in the World Championship in Glasgow in August.
The star player, who won the silver medal in Rio Olympic and became the first Indian shuttler to lift Korea Open Super Series title, is now the second athlete after former Indian skipper MS Dhoni to be nominated for the award. She joins the elite club comprising of Saina Nehwal & Pullela Gopichand.
For Sindhu, the honour adds to the illustrious awards she has already picked up this season. The 22-year old shuttler has been in spectacular touch, since she is winning Indian Open Super Series and the Syed Modi Grand Prix Gold title, taking our country to touch the sky of success.
