Tokyo Olympics 2020: Will Mirabai’s silver medal be converted into gold? What is the truth behind the noise of Twitter

Mirabai Chanu is the second Indian athlete to win a medal in weightlifting at the Olympic Games. Before him, Karnam Malleswari had given India a medal in weightlifting in the Sydney Olympics-2000.

Mirabai Chanu opened India’s account in Tokyo Olympics by winning silver medal in weightlifting.

Mirabai Chanu was expected to win a medal at the Tokyo Olympics-2020. These hopes of the whole country were fulfilled on Saturday when Mirabai of Manipur won the silver medal in the women’s 49 kg weight category. Chanu won the silver medal by lifting a total of 202 kg. He lifted 87 kg in snatch and 115 kg in clean and jerk. The gold medal went to China’s Zhihui How, who lifted a weight of 210 kg and set a new Olympic record. The bronze medal went to Indonesia’s Windi Kantika Aisha, who lifted 194 kg.

A rumor has gained momentum after Mirabai won the silver medal and it is rumored that Mirabai’s silver medal may turn into gold – if this happens then it will be a huge history in Indian sport and Mirabai will win the gold medal at the Olympic Games. Vali will become India’s first female player, but from where did this rumor gain momentum? tell you

is a tweet

The rumor that Mirabai changed silver to gold originated from the social media platform Twitter. A tweet by US citizen Kyle Bais is going viral in which he has written that gold medalist Zhuhui will undergo a dope test. It is written in Bais’s Twitter bio that he is the Chief Investment Officer of Heyman Capital Management. As soon as this tweet surfaced on social media, many users assumed that Zhuhui had taken a banned substance and Mirabai Chanu’s silver medal would be changed to gold by canceling her gold medal. The truth though is something else. In fact, 5,000 players were randomly tested at the Olympics, including pre and post-contest samples. Right now, however, it cannot be predicted that Zhuhui’s test will come positive, even if he has been tested. Although if her test comes positive, then gold can come in Mirabai’s account, but it will be a matter to be seen.

Mirabai created history by winning silver

Mirabai Chanu’s silver medal is India’s second medal in women’s weightlifting at the Olympics. Earlier, Karnam Malleswari had won a medal in the 2000 Sydney Olympics. That is, after 21 years, India has won the medal of women’s weightlifting in the Olympics. Mirabai has also become the second Indian female athlete after badminton star PV Sindhu to win a silver medal at the Tokyo Olympics.
