Sindhu suffers ankle sprain, to resume CWG training soon

New Delhi: Indian badminton ace PV Sindhu’s right ankle injury, which she suffered during training on Tuesday, is “just a sprain”, and she will resume training soon.

The badminton competitions at the CWG will begin with the mixed team event on April 5

The 2016 Rio Olympic silver medallist, a top gold medal prospect for India at the upcoming Commonwealth Games, went off the practice court after suffering a sprain in her right ankle while practicing at the Gopichand Academy in Hyderabad.

“It is not a major injury. Medical tests have revealed that it is just a sprain,” the 22-year-old’s mother Pusarla Vijaya said.

“She can go to training from tomorrow onwards,” she added about her daughter who reached the semi-finals of the All England championships last week.

Sindhu is a three-time World Championships medallist and had won bronze in the 2014 CWG edition in Glasgow. Not only in the singles category, the Hyderabadi will be a key player in the mixed team event as well.
