Indian cricketing legend Sachin Tendulkar will present Olympic sensation P V Sindhu for making the country proud with her performances at Rio Olympics.
The 21-year old have won a Silver medal at the Olympic games in the two medals, the country has won in the games. Sindhu is expected to be arriving at Hyderabad on Monday as huge celebrations await across the city.
The BMW car is being sponsored the president of Hyderabad Badminton Association of India V Chamundeswaranath, who is a close friend of Sachin Tendulkar.
“Sindhu will be gifted a BMW car by Mr. Chamudeswaranath and his friends. Mr. Sachin Tendulkar will be presenting the car to Sindhu,” said BAI Secretary Punnaiah Choudary.
Chamundeswarnath had also asked Sachin to present BMW car to Saina Nehwal back in 2012 when she won a bronze medal for India in London Olympics.
Sindhu went into the Olympic games with the minimum of expectations as all the people expected Saina Nehwal to clinch a medal in the games but a serious knee injury to Saina meant she was ousted from the games despite fighting her way in spite of having an injury.
Sindhu had built on confidence from game to game as he created history when she made it to the finals of Women’s singles. She tried to give a tough fight to World No.1 Carolina Marin but has eventually lost in an inspiring battle as he settled for a Silver medal.
Wishes have poured in for the shuttler from common people to the Prime Minister of India as few governments have announced royalties while Indian government is set to award her ‘Khel Ratna’- The highest honor for any sports personality in the country.
Sachin Tendulkar who went to Rio as a goodwill ambassador to cheer the 119 members Indian contingent had earlier presented a Maruti Swift to Sindhu when she won the girls singles title in Asian Youth Under-19 Championship in 2012.
