Indian shuttler PV Sindhu nominated for Padma Bhushan, third highest civilian award

Sindhu's name has been recommended for the third highest civilian award

Ace Indian Shuttler PV Sindhu was nominated for the prestigious Padma Bhushan Award by the Sports Ministry on Monday.

Sindhu put the disappointment of losing the final in Glasgow behind her and went on to become the first Indian shuttler to win the Korea Open title earlier this month. With this, she becomes just the third badminton player, after Pullela Gopichand and Saina Nehwal, to have this honour bestowed upon her. She narrowly lost to Spanish shuttler Carolina Marin.

"Very happy that my name has been recommended for Padma Bhushan".

It is the fruit for her hard work that Sports Ministry helmed by Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore recommended Sindhu for this prestigious award.

A three-time medallist at World Championship, Sindhu has been unstoppable ever since becoming the first Indian to win a silver at the Rio Games a year ago. Although it came about momentarily, Sindhu fought herself up and bagged a silver at the BWF World Championships and then defeated Nozomi Okuhara to clinch maiden Korea Open title.

Sindhu has reaped the rewards of her hard work on the field as she is among the most celebrated sportpersons in the country. The recommendation of Sports Ministry to the Padma Bhushan award for PV Sindhu inspires many women.

PV Sindhu became the second athlete after former Indian cricket team skipper MS Dhoni to be nominated for the award this year.
