When Chanu won the Tokyo Olympics, friends and neighbors celebrated with her family. Everyone was praying when they saw Chanu's match live on television. When Chanu finally became the pride of the country with his medal achievement, everyone gathered together to celebrate.

We are very happy today. This is the result of her hard work. India and Manipur are proud of her, Chanu's relative in Imphal told the media. On the second day, Chanu won the silver medal in the women's weightlifting 49 kg. Chanu, who performed well throughout the race, lifted 87 kg in the snatch and 115 kg in the clean arc jerk. In the first attempt, Chanu lifted 84 kg in the snatch and 110 kg in the clean and jerk.

Chanu was the only Indian player in the race. Chanu Malleswari became the second Indian to win an Olympic medal in weightlifting after winning bronze in the 69 kg category at the 2000 Sydney Games. Earlier, at the World Championships, Chanu won bronze in the snatch, lifting a total of 205 kg in clean and jerk. It was this performance that earned the Chanu Olympic qualification.
