Even Jacobs’ main claim to fame was an European 60 metre indoor title earlier this year. The 26 yearold made a European record, with American Fred Kerley taking silver in 9.84 seconds in one of the most understated major championship 100 metre races of recent times.

And why not? The rigours of competing at the Olympics is immeasurable. It gnaws and growls, especially in your head. That ubiquitous word PRESSURE keeps fiddling in every sinew of your brain. It’s enough to scar you for a lifetime. Winning one medal at the Games is seen as something improbable, especially in our medal-bereft country Winning . two? Well, nothing short of a miracle. Somehow in Sindhu’s world, the word is a misfit. She has made the moniker ‘Big Game Hunter’ her own. She may lumber her way into a World Championships or an Olympics, but once there, garbed in an aura of invincibility Sindhu dredges , her way through everything. Sindhu’s record since the World Championships gold in Basel is perhaps the most unimpressive part of her career. She appeared in 15 tournaments and managed to win only 23 matches — 1.5 on an average. For such a prodigious talent, the figure doesn’t fit in her resume. It’s why she kind of flew under the radar going into Tokyo. Yes, she was a big tournament monster but the pandemic had ensured that she would be coming in with almost zero match practice. Add to that the needless controversies she had to tide over in the last year or so. Other Indian athletes will have possibly wilted. But Sindhu is made of sterner stuff, she doesn’t wave the white flag. Her strong mind on those strong shoulders have been companions on this most surreal of journeys. On Sunday, she used both to traverse past the challenge of China’s He Bingjiao to become just the third woman in the sport’s history to win back-toback singles medals at the Olympics. The southpaw had a better head-to-head record but Sindhu isn’t one to let that affect her. Not at the Olympics anyway She smashed, used the . effective cross court smash to add to her winners count and induced errors. The southpaw was expected to trouble her but Sindhu used her height and reach to her advantage. Just before the end, the sight of Bingjiao on her knees and looking at the floor wondering what hit her rammed home Sindhu’s performance. A generational Olympian from a country that doesn’t produce generational athletes. I had a lot of emotions going through me should I be happy that I won bronze or sad that I lost the opportunity to play in the final? P V Sindhu Proactive approach pays dividends On Saturday, Sindhu was subdued, as she let the Chinese Taipei dictate the pace. But on Sunday, she dictated proceedings. He Bingjiao wasn’t allowed time to breathe. Sindhu also used her height to maximum advantage to smash winning shots Dilpreet Singh celebrates his goal against Great Britain in the quarterfinal of the men’s hockey on Sunday. India win 3-1 | AP It’s coming home! Chant begins as India eye history EXPRESS NEWS SERVICE WELL. To borrow a popular soundtrack that made the rounds three weeks ago, is it coming home? Can it really come home? On a night when PV Sindhu assumed immortality on the world stage, the men’s hockey team took a giant stride towards destiny and ending 41 years of hurt. The history is so well known it’s written once every four years — eight gold, one silver and two bronze — if nothing else to remind the nation of what their hockey players were capable of. But while living in history books, sepia-toned pictures and grainy YouTube videos has a nice earthly charm to it, history is no substitute for the present. That’s why the current iteration’s 3-1 quarterfinal win over Great Britain is possibly their biggest win since the 1980 final. Now’s a chance for a young team under a capable manager who has been allowed time and space to create new ones.
