Spanish badminton world number one Carolina Marin defeated Indian shuttler P. V. Sindhu in three games to win Olympic gold in the women’s singles Friday.

Marin, who celebrated almost every victorious point by shrieking at the top of her voice, lost the first game 21-19 but grabbed the second 21-12 before clinching gold with a 21-15 win in the decider.

It was a first gold medal for the 23-year-old Spaniard, who was told off by the umpire on several occasions during the match because of the level of her screeching.

The third and final game was locked at 10-10 before Marin went 14-10 ahead.

It was a gap that Sindhu could not bridge as the Spaniard went to 20-15 before finishing off her Indian counterpart in an engrossing encounter.

The 21-year-old Sindhu’s hard-fought silver was India’s second medal of the Rio Olympics after female wrestler Sakshi Malik claimed bronze on Wednesday.
