Mirabai Chanu brings a medal for India
Mirabai Chanu on Saturday, in a proud moment for India, finished second in the 49kg category of weightlifting to secure a silver medal.
However, reports of Chanu being eligible for gold is also making rounds since Monday. As per an ANI report, China’s Zhihui Hou who won the women’s 49kg weightlifting gold has been asked to undergo a doping test by the authorities at the Tokyo Games. If Zhihui fails the test, it would make Mirabai the first woman ever to win a Gold medal in weightlifting for India.
