Mirabai Chanu on Thursday became the first Indian in over two decades to claim a gold medal at the World Weightlifting Championship in Anaheim, USA, exorcising the ghosts of her forgettable outing at the Rio Olympics. Seeing the tricolour from the podium, tears of joy rolled down her cheeks, as Chanu picked up a rare honour for an Indian at the marquee event. "I cried a lot after the win and seeing the Indian flag going high, I got very emotional," she said in an exclusive chat with NDTV. She also thanked fans for all the support and said that she will try not to make the same mistakes again that she made in 2016 Rio Olympics.
