Badminton fraternity hails Saina's bronze medal feat
Congratulatory messages poured in for ace shuttler Saina Nehwal after she earned India its third medal in the London Olympics, clinching a bronze in the women's singles event under fortuitous circumstances.
Saina emerged victorious after her opponent and world number two Xin Wang of China conceded the third-place play-off match due to a knee injury after winning the first game.
Former Asian badminton champion Dinesh Khanna feels this medal will give a big boost to Indian badminton.
"I am very happy to see Saina winning the bronze for India. It is a proud moment for India and it will give big boost to Indian badminton," Khanna said.
