India’s medal in Tokyo Olympic 2020

India Medal Tally Tokyo Olympics – 1 Gold, 2 Silver, 4 Bronze, Medal table is given here. Check the Tokyo Olympic Medal tally for India from here. Tokyo Olympic 2020 is organized in Japan this year. Players from all around the world are performing to win medals for their country. India already has broken its previous record of 6 medals in a single Olympic as they have won 7 medals on Tokyo Olympic 2021 already.

India finished 48th on the medal tally in Tokyo, its highest ranking in over four decades (if one were to go by the total number of medals, India would have actually finished 33rd. However, ranking is done primarily based on gold medals won). The previous best in this period was the 51st rank finish at Beijing in 2008, when India won three medals, including Abhinav Bindra’s gold.India has finished significantly higher in the era in which it used to win gold in hockey, but that time is not really comparable both because of the dozens of countries that have come into being since then and the expansion in the number of sports and hence medals. In Moscow, for instance, India finished at 23rd rank but with just a solitary medal, the hockey gold. A repeat of that at Tokyo would have placed India at joint 63rd, a measure of how different the two eras are.In London 2012, India had finished 57th despite winning more medals than in Beijing because the medal table ranks countries by gold, silver and bronze in that order and India didn’t win a gold in London. In Rio in 2016, the medal tally crashed to just two and so did the ranking to 67th. From there, it’s now gone up nearly 20 places.

The saven warriors

1gold, 2 silver, 4 bronze – India produced it’s richest-ever medal haul and the finest performance of all time at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, which ended on Sunday. Here are the men and women of steel and thunder who made India proud and gave the nation something to cheer about in these dark times of a deadly pandemic.

1.neeraj chopra

There were bigger names with better records in Tokyo. But while most succumbed to the pressure of the big stage, the 23-year-old boy from Haryana’s Panipat district relished and revelled in the moment. Following his golden throw, millions became emotional on hearing the national anthem at the Olympics for the first time since Beijing 2008. A fitting climax to the story of Neeraj Chopra, who chanced upon the sport while trying to lose weight and who overcame a clutch of injuries to give Indian athletics its greatest moment on the world’s biggest sporting stage .

2.Saikhom Mirabai chanu

Much was expected from Mirabai Chanu at Rio 2016. She flopped, failing to make a single clean and jerk lift. The pressure to deliver was crushing at Tokyo 2020. But coached by Vijay Sharma, the amiable 26-year-old from Manipur made light work of the heavy weights to clinch a silver with a smile in the 49kg category. Redemption had never been more satisfying and sweeter for the woman who picked up logs to gather winter fuel for her family as a child.

3.Ravi Kumar Dahiya

He was ranked world no. 4. But in the run-up to the Olympics, the focus was hardly ever on the 23-year-old Olympic debutant from Sonipat. Unmindful, Kumar produced a performance of stunning audacity and endurance while trailing 2-9 against opponent Nurislam Sanayev in the semis. Desperate to get out of his iron grip, the Kazakh bit him badly in his forearm but Dahiya wouldn’t let go till the tide was turned. Dahiya fought hard but lost in the final to become India’s second silver medal-winning wrestler after Sushil Kumar. A fiercely determined athlete, he could well improve upon his medal colour in 2024.

4.Men’s team ( hockey)

None of them was born when India last won an Olympic medal in hockey. But nothing, not even a potentially morale-sapping 7-1 loss to Australia, could stop captain Manpreet Singh’s boys from their tryst with the podium. The defeat spurred them to deliver one superlative performance after another, resulting in a bronze playoff. The match against Germany was for the ages. You can keep watching India’s 5-4 triumph for the rest of your lives. But this team holds the promise of many more wins to come.

5.pv sindhu

In the early stages in Tokyo, she looked below her best. But like a finely-tuned precision instrument, Pusarla Venkata Sindhu hit the perfect notes as the tournament peaked. She simply swatted aside Chinese He Bing Jiao 21-13, 21-15 in the bronze medal playoff to add a second Olympic medal in her kitty. When it’s PV Sindhu, once is not enough.

6.Lovlina Borgohain

Covid-19 affected her preparation. But the tall pugilist from Assam tried to make the best of the situation. She lifted LPG cylinders, worked in the paddy fields to keep fit. In Tokyo, Lovlina showed the world she could fearlessly box with the best. Five feet, nine inches tall, she used her long reach to devastating effect to fashion an amazing medal story.
