India has sent its largest contingent yet to the Olympics this year with 228 members participating in 18 sports.
So far India has won two medals this year at Olympics. Saikhom Mirabai Chanu claimed the first medal for India by winning silver in women's 49 kg weightlifting.
The second medal was won by badminton player PV Sindhu who clinched the bronze medal by beating China's He Bing Jiao last Sunday. This is the second consecutive medal for Sindhu, making her the first woman athlete from India and the second in the nation to achieve this feat.
