Mirabai Chanu's possible medal upgrade news turns out to be wrong; China's Zhihui Hou stands winner
Updated on : Friday, July 30, 2021, 9:45 AM IST

Tokyo, July 30: The gold medal in the weightlifting 49kg category will stay with China's Zhihui Hou, and Mirabai Chanu will remain the silver medallist.

Earlier, ANI had reported Zhihui Hou will be tested by anti-doping authorities and if she failed the test, then Chanu stands a chance to be awarded gold. But there has been no testing and it was an inadvertent error while reporting the news.

It stands clarified that Hou was not taken for an anti-doping test. Furthermore, there have been no developments from the routine anti-doping procedures that were carried out after the 49kg competition.

China's Zhihui Hou had bagged gold on Saturday with a total of 210kg and created a new Olympic Record. Mirabai Chanu had opened India's medals tally on Saturday as she bagged a silver at the Tokyo International Forum.

Chanu lifted a total of 202 kg (87kg in snatch and 115kg in clean and jerk) during her four successful attempts across the competition.

China's Zhihui Hou created a new Olympic Record while Indonesia's Windy Cantika Aisah grabbed bronze with a total of 194kg.

With this monumental silver medal, Chanu became the second Indian weightlifter to win an Olympic medal after Karnam Malleswari bagged bronze in the 69kg category at the 2000 Sydney Games when the weightlifting arena was opened to women for the first time.

I just hope no one pulled a laurel ,and involved authority turned a blind eye for the medals otherwise it would be unfair to other athletes,female race and it doesn't do any good to China .
China should do their internal investigation and handover any awards received unfairly if that's the case,that's good for everyone .

It's quite common for femal weightlifter, some belts to gird them up. Besides, Chinese men weightlifters swept all golds in weightlifting so far, they are doing even better than the women's team, can you accuse them being women?

Chinese male weightlifters are doing even better. They wanna go against Lv Xiaojun? He can literally bench press multiple entire Indians.
