Weightlifter Mirabai Chanu, who won India’s first medal at the ongoing Tokyo Olympics, said that the feeling of having won silver is still sinking in. She took to Twitter on Friday to share pictures with her Tokyo 2020 silver medal. “Finally my toil of 4 years came true. The feeling of being able to kiss this medal is inexplicable,” she wrote. “Winning this medal is a dream come true for me and I’m still letting this feeling to sink in,” she added.

Mirabai reached Imphal on Tuesday after her heroics in Tokyo. She was seen hugging her mother Saikhom Ongbi Tombi Leima and her father Saikhom Kriti Meitei with tears rolling down her face as security guards formed a ring around her.

The 26-year-old lifted a total of 202kg (87kg+115kg) in the women’s 49kg category to better Karnam Malleswari’s bronze in the 2000 Sydney Olympics. It was also India’s first Olympic medal since the Sydney Games.

Mirabai Chanu revealed she had not eaten for two days prior to her competition at the Games.

“I didn’t eat anything for two days before the competition because I was concerned about my weight,” Chanu had told NDTV after reaching Delhi from Tokyo.

“It’s very difficult (to maintain weight). We need to strictly control our diet to maintain weight for this category.”
