Mirabai Chanu After Winning Tokyo 2020 Silver, 'Manipur's Prayer Answered'

Saikhom Mirabai Chanu is dying to return to Imphal. The Manipuri has hardly been home in the last five years as she trained hard after Rio Olympics 2016 to win a medal at Tokyo 2020. On Saturday, Mirabai Chanu won India's first medal at the Tokyo Olympics when she clinched a weightlifting silver in the 49 kg class. Manipur chief minister N. Biren congratulated Mirabai Chanu and promised 'Manipur's daughter' a slew of rewards, including a job commensurate with her status as an Olympic medal winner. Mirabai Chanu is a ticket collector with the Indian Railways. Mirabai Chanu is arriving in India on Monday (July 26). (Photos: Agencies)
