Puri, Aug 19:
International sand artist, animator and sculptor Manas Kumar Sahoo today carved a sand art on the beaches of Odisha’s Puri to congratulate India’s youngest individual medal winner at Olympics for winning a silver medal at Rio de Janeiro this evening.
The 21-year-old shuttler had to settle for the silver medal after losing to Spain’s Carolina Martin in a nail-biting thriller which went down to the third match.
The sand artist wished Sindhu and Sakshi Mallik who have won medals for India at the world’s greatest sporting extravaganza.
With wishes pouring in for the sensational player, Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik also congratulated the shuttler on her extraordinary feat.
