Playing against Canada’s Michelle Li in the final of women’s Badminton singles event, the Indian badminton player came up with a dominating performance to clinch Gold at the CWG 2022. Sindhu defeated the Canadian counterpart in straight sets by 21-15, 21-13 to clinch her first Gold at the prestigious event.

This is her third medal at the Commonwealth Games. Earlier, she won Bronze at the 2014 Glasgow Commonwealth Games and Silver at 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games. At the 2022 Commonwealth Games, she finally won the Gold that eluded her for a long time.
