Young Indians to watch out for during the Commonwealth Games 2018


With the Commonwealth Games underway in Gold Coast, Australia; the 225-member brigade from India is competing in games varying from Badminton to Parasports. With a good mix of youth and experience, the hopes are high for India. Let’s look at some of the athletes who are considered favourites to bring home the glory.

1. PV Sindhu (Badminton)
Currently a World number 3 in the BWF World Ranking, PV Sindhu is a professional badminton player, competing in the CWG 2018 – Badminton Singles. PV Sindhu, who is the flag-bearer for India, is a formidable favourite to win a gold at the CWG 2018. Sindhu, who was adjudged joint Badminton Player of the Year at this year’s Times of India Sports Awards (TOISA), won a bronze medal in Glasgow in 2014 and would be looking to better it at the CWG 2018.
