Kuala Lumpur, Nov 23 (IANS) Two-time Olympic Games medallist and star Indian badminton player PV Sindhu will stand for re-election in the Badminton World Federation (BWF) Athletes’ Commission polls in Huelva, Spain on December 17.
“World champion and two-time Olympic medallist Pusarla V. Sindhu is the only current Athletes’ Commission member standing for re-election. Nine candidates have been nominated for the available six positions,” BWF said in a statement.
Sindhu has not been in her best form of late and had crashed out of the Indonesia Masters last week in the semifinal, losing to Japan’s Akane Yamaguchi in a one-sided match.
Women’s doubles specialist and gold medallist at the Tokyo Olympics, Greysia Polii of Indonesia, is also contesting the elections.
“I would like to assist my fellow players to achieve their dreams and help them out with their requests around competing on the international circuit,” said Polii after her nomination.
