Felicitation ceremony

Hyderabad: Rio Olympics silver medallist shuttler PV Sindhu and bronze winner grappler Sakshi Malik, along with gymnast Dipa Karmakar and badminton coach Pullela Gopichand, were presented BMW cars by cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar here on Sunday.

Hyderabad District Badminton Association president Chamundeshwarnath gifted the luxury cars to the four sportspersons for their outstanding achievement in the recently concluded Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Tendulkar, who was the goodwill ambassador of the Indian team at the Rio Olympics, handed over the keys at a function at the Gopichand Badminton Academy here.

Under the guidance of chief coach Gopichand, Sindhu clinched the silver medal in women's singles, making her the first Indian woman sportsperson to win a silver in the Olympics. Wrestler Sakshi bagged a bronze in women's freestyle 58kg class.

Dipa, who missed a medal by a whisker, finished fourth in the vault event of gymnastics and stunned the world with her risky Produnova vault.
