What an amazing performance by Mirabai Chanu on the Day 2 of the Olympics. She has confirmed a silver medal for India in the 49kg category.
Mirabai Chanu successfully lifted the 84kg and 87kg weights. However, she failed to lift the 89kg weight and settled for the silver medal. China’s Zhihu lifted 94kg to create an Olympic record. Mirabai Chanu lifted 115kg in the clean and jerk event to create an Olympic Record.
Chanu was smiling after winning the silver medal. She has finally overcome her loss at the 2016 Rio Olympics where she failed to perform, unfortunately. Chanu has made the whole nation proud. This definitely is a slap to the faces of sexists who believe women are born to do household chores. Chanu has established her worth among the finest in the sport.
