The nation goes ecstatic as Sakshi Malik wins India her first medal at the Rio Olympics to the delight of all Indians many of whom who were awoke to watch her in action past midnight at 3 am. It was a dream come true performance from the Haryana girl who today is the darling of the entire country as she mauled her opponent in the last 10 seconds when everybody believed she was down and out. The nickname ‘comeback queen’ which she is now called fits her right as she gives her best in the last minute of the fight and has often upset her opponents when they were on top which is the hallmark of a great sportsman. The down to earth girl is the toast of the entire nation today who are very proud of her performance at Rio. Well done Sakshi Malik. A bronze is as good as gold for India and I am sure you can win a Gold at the next Olympics for which you should work on your game from today itself.
