It’s been eleven days since the start of the much-awaited Tokyo Olympic Games, India has 2 medals under its belt so far (with one more assured from boxer Lovlina Borgohain) — a silver from weightlifter Mirabai Chanu and a bronze from shuttler P. V. Sindhu. But the proud and emotional moments for 1.3 billion Indians are many through these 11 days of the Tokyo Olympics.

A gamut of emotions ran through Indians as we celebrated ace shuttler P. V. Sindhu’s accomplishment of becoming the first Indian woman to win 2 individual Olympic medals, cheered for our women in blue who created history by qualifying for the hockey semifinal for the first time, watched the men’s hockey team lose the ‘after-41-year’ Olympic semifinal match to Belgium, and moved by the fighting spirit of boxer Satish Kumar who fought like a warrior in quarterfinals despite being severely injured during pre-quarters. A few results called for celebration while a few others left us shattered, but the spirited performance of India’s Olympic contingent at Tokyo is all that mattered. 

India’s Winners and Medal Tally:

Mirabai Chanu (Silver) — Weightlifting, Women’s 49-kg category

P. V. Sindhu (Bronze) — Badminton, Women’s Singles

With one silver and one bronze, India currently stands at 63rd position on the Tokyo Olympics Medal Tally. China, the United States, and Japan occupy the first three positions bagging 32, 22, 19 medals respectively.

A look at India’s Olympic contingent for Tokyo Olympics:

India’s contingent of 127 athletes set foot in Tokyo this July to participate in 18 sports events — Archery (4), Athletics (17), Badminton (3), Boxing (9), Equestrian (1), Golf (3), Gymnastics (1), Judo (1), Rowing (2), Sailing (3), Shooting (15), Swimming (3), Table Tennis (4), Tennis (2), Weightlifting (1), and Wrestling (7).
