India had their best medal haul of seven in the Tokyo Olympics in 2021 and that has raised the expectations from Indian athletes for the upcoming Paris Olympics 2024.
The one who opened India’s account in the Tokyo Olympics weightlifter Mirabai Chanu is expected to once again give her country a great start in Paris 2024 like she did in 2021. But before Paris 2024 she is eyeing the Asian Games medal in Hangzhou in September this year.
“It is the only medal that is missing from my repertoire. I have won medals at the Olympics, CWG and the World Championships and this year I will have the opportunity to do so at the Asian Games. I am very happy with the way I am preparing and am very confident I will win a medal for India at the Asian Games, ” said Olympic silver medallist weightlifter Mirabai Chanu during an event.
Her weightlifting coach, Vijay Sharma, also exuded confidence at Miarabai’s prospects. “We beat the Olympic gold medallist at the World Championship and now know where we stand against the Chinese. If things go to plan I am confident of Mira winning a gold medal at the Asian Games”, said Sharma.
