New Delhi: Flying an economy seat from Rio de Janeiro in Brazil, Pusarla V Sindhu's achievement at the Rio Olympics 2016 is nothing short of a miracle. Festooned with flowers and celebratory scarf, Sindhu was received to a hero's welcome at the Rajiv Gandhi International Airport in Hyderabad on Monday.

The Real VIP

The Indian contingent at the Rio Olympics did not consist only of Indian athletes; most of the members in the contingent were politicians and the likes. India's Sports Minister Vijay Goel and his colleagues did not make it easy for the Indian athletes to perform with dignity at the Olympics, and surmounted with other problems, most of the athletes underperformed.

From the rubble emerged PV Sindhu, beating the highly-ranked badminton players in the world one by one. Albeit she tried to do her best against World No. 1 Carolina Marin of Spain, the ecstatic and impassioned Spanish player outclassed her, giving Sindhu her much-deserved silver medal.




The Telangana government has announced a gift of Rs 50 lakh for PV Sindhu as they claimed that Sindhu is Telangana's daughter. Sportstar Sachin Tendulkar has announced that he will be presenting Sindhu with a BMW car on August 28. Sindhu's felicitation ceremony is going to take place at the Gachibowli Stadium in Hyderabad where most prominent bodies from the state will be present to celebrate her achievement.

Sindhu's inspirational coach Gopichand will also be present alongside with the athlete. His aspirations for his athletes have led to major achievements for India at the Olympics.



Sindhu's parents

Sindhu's parents were flabbergasted when they saw their daughter beat the World No. 2 at the Rio Olympics 2016. And after that, there was no stopping them from hoping the best for their daughter. Always supportive of her dreams, Sindhu's parents will also be celebrating the occasion with their daughter who has now become one of the most prominent athletes in India.
