PV Sindhu continued to live her Olympic dream on her debut by advancing to the final of the women’s singles badminton event at the Rio Games on Thursday.

Sindhu outclassed world No. 6 Nozomi Okuhara of Japan 21-19, 21-10 in 48 minutes in the semi-final to become the first Indian shuttler to reach an Olympic summit clash.

She also betters Saina Nehwal’s feat by assuring herself of a Silver medal at the mega event. Saina had won a Bronze in 2012 London Games.

The 21-year-old, who won Bronze in Glasgow Commonwealth Games and Incheon Asian Games, will take on Carolina Marin of Spain, who beat an injured Li Li Xuerui of China in straight games, in the battle for ultimate prize on Friday.
