Mirabai Chanu, who won silver medal for India in Tokyo Olympics-2020, has returned home. He has been given a warm welcome at the airport. Weightlifter Chanu has thanked him for this wonderful welcome. It has been learned that the medal of Mirabai Chanu, who has won a silver medal in weightlifting (49 kg category), can be converted into gold.
Actually, Chinese player Hou Zhioui is suspected of doping. There is a message in the Indian group in Tokyo that Hou Zihui is being tested and it remains to be seen what happens next. The members of the Indian delegation are not saying much about this. Hou Zhioui was about to return to her country today, but she has been asked to stay. This has happened for the first time in the history of the Olympics, when a player’s medal was taken away for failing doping.
If Mirabai’s medal in women’s weightlifting (49kg) at the Tokyo Olympics turns into gold, it will be India’s second gold medal in the individual event in Olympic history. Veteran shooter Abhinav Bindra gave India its first gold medal (Beijing 2008).
Mirabai Chanu has ended India’s 21-year wait for a medal in the Olympic Games weightlifting event. Earlier, Karnam Malleswari had won the country a bronze medal in weightlifting at the Sydney Olympics 2000. Mirabai has returned home. He himself has given information about this by tweeting.
Manipur Chief Minister N Biren Singh directly interacted with Mirabai live. He announced that a reward amount of one crore rupees would be given to him by the Manipur government.
Chanu will get one crore rupees
CM has shared his chat on social media. N Biren Singh expressed his happiness and said that he had shared the news of Mirabai’s victory with all the fellow Chief Ministers during a meeting. He told that when Mirabai won this medal, a meeting was going on with Home Minister Amit Shah with all the Chief Ministers of North East. In such a situation, in the middle of the meeting, the CM broke this news from his side and then everyone stood up and congratulated Meera.
