Who won the gold medal in women's singles badminton in Commonwealth Games 2022?
PV Sindhu
Michelle Li
Beiwen Zhang
Yeo Jia Min

Correct Answer : Option (A) - PV Sindhu

Former world champion PV Sindhu added one more gold medal to her cabinet by winning the women’s singles title at the Commonwealth Games 2022 in Birmingham, UK, on Monday (8 August 2022).
PV Sindhu, a two-time Olympic medallist, beat the 2014 CWG champion Michelle Li of Canada 21-15, 21-13 to win her first gold medal at the Commonwealth Games in women’s singles.
PV Sindhu lost to Saina Nehwal in the final at Gold Coast in 2018 to settle for silver. At Glasgow in 2014, PV Sindhu went on to win the bronze medal after losing to Michelle Li 22-20, 22-20 in the semi-finals.
Playing with a strapping on her left ankle at the National Exhibition Centre, PV Sindhu, seventh in the badminton world rankings, was stiffer in movements and looked to play shorter rallies against the world No. 13 Michelle Li.
PV Sindhu relied heavily on the mix of cross-court drop shots and smashes to go into the break leading 11-8. The Indian badminton player then built on it post interval to take the opening game..
