Biographie

P. V. Sindhu

Pusarla Venkata Sindhu is arguably the most prolific Indian badminton star of the 21st century. As the first Indian woman to win a silver medal at the Olympics and gold at the BWF World Championships, the World Champion is in a class by herself when it comes to Indian badminton in the 21st century.

Along with fellow badminton player Saina Nehwal and boxer Mary Kom, she has been one of the shining beacons for sportswomen in India. Currently ranked at world number seven, shuttler PV Sindhu remains as one of India’s biggest hopes in badminton as the nation gears up for Tokyo 2020. 

PV Sindhu was born on July 5, 1995, in Hyderabad, Andhra Pradesh to parents who were both volleyball players at the national level, with her father PV Ramana winning the bronze medal at the 1986 Seoul Asian Games. As a result, sport already coursed through her veins from the start.

While her parents may have been volleyball players, badminton caught PV Sindhu’s fancy after watching Pullela Gopichand in action, and by the age of eight, she was a regular at the sport.
