How did Mirabai Chanu’s life change after the Rio Olympics?
“Being part of the Rio Olympics, made me learn a lot of new things. In fact, I have learned almost everything from it — from my weaknesses to how to overcome them, how to improve my training and performance,” Mirabai said in a video posted by Sports Authority of India (SAI) on Monday.
India’s eminent weightlifter Mirabai Chanu has learned a lot after the defeat in the Rio Olympics five years ago. She is now confident of doing well at the Tokyo Olympics.

Mohammed Azharuddin on Sunday came in support of WV Raman. Azharuddin said there are very few sharper brains in cricket than the WV Ramana (recently-removed women’s national team coach).
In a less expected decision last week, former Indian bowler Ramesh Powar replaced Raman as the Indian women’s cricket team’s head coach.
The decision surprised many, but Azharuddin fully supported his former teammate Raman. Raman had previously played under Azharuddin.
