Mirabai Chanu Interview:

Indian Weightlifter Mirabai Chanu returned back to India on Monday after winning a Silver Medal in Weightlifting at the Tokyo Olympics 2020.

Mirabai Chanu outshines other contenders to win a silver in the Women’s 49 Kg category of weightlifting as she lifted a total of 202 kg (87kg+115kg) on Saturday to improve Karnam Mallleswari’s bronze in the 2000 Sydney Olympics.

While Chanu returns back to India on Monday evening, the people narrated slogans of “Bharat Mata ki Jai” with sheer pride and happiness. During her interview,  Mirabai Chanu also shared that she has been preparing to earn a medal at the Tokyo Olympics 2020 for the past 5 years, as she missed her medal at the 2016 Rio Olympics.

It must be noted that Mirabai Chanu’s Silver Medal can also turn out to be a Gold Medal as China’s Hou Zhihui will have to undergo a doping test. So, if Zhihui fails in the doping test, there are chances for Mirabai to win gold.
