    Rio Olympics : Shuttlers Kidambi Srikanth and P.V Sindhu kept India’s medal hopes alive by entering the quarter-finals of their respective categories as boxer Vikas Krishan Yadav crashed out while the athletes continued to cut a sorry figure at the ongoing Rio Olympics here.

    World No.11 Srikanth continued his rollicking form to register a 21-19, 21-19 triumph in 42 minutes over world No.5 Jan O Jorgensen in the men’s singles pre-quarterfinals at the Rio Centrio on Monday.

    Srikanth had to work hard to overcome Jorgensen. In a hard fought first game, both shuttlers started on an attacking note but it was Srikanth who managed to maintain the lead with some bodyline smashes.

    Jorgensen, bronze medallist in the 2014 World Championships, gave a tough fight at the end but it was the Guntur lad who proved superior to clinch the first game 21-19.

    In the second game, the Denmark player upped the ante and played a disciplined game to maintain the lead from the start.

    But with some swift court movements, the Indian diminished the lead to stay at 17-17 and then took a one-point lead to make it 19-18 before wrapping up the game to advance into the quarter-finals.

    Srikanth had entered the pre-quarterfinals after topping Group H. In quarters, he will face the tough task of beating two-time defending champion and five-time world champion Lin Dan of China.
