The Indian contingent capped off a sensation Day 15 at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics as Neeraj Chopra's historic gold at the men's javelin throw final helped the nation amass their highest-ever medal tally at a Games in Tokyo. India won seven medals at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics - 1 Gold, 2 Silver, 4 Bronze - to go one better of their medal haul at the 2012 London Olympics.
Mirabai Chanu kicked off the proceedings on Day 1 of the Tokyo Games claiming India's first silver in weightlifting before PV Sindhu became the nation's second Olympic double medallist after wrestler Sushil Kumar. The shuttler added a bronze to her cabinet after winning the silver at the 2016 Rio Games. Debutant boxer Lovlina Borgohain added a third to India's list with a bronze in women's welterweight category.
Earlier this week, the men's hockey team ended their 41-year-long wait to add a 13th Olympic medal to their illustrious all-time list with a bronze after defeating Germany 5-4 before two wrestlers - Ravi Dahiya and Bajrang Punia - claimed two more medals.
