The Olympic silver medallist said she felt pain while warming up before the event started and despite her coach asking her to pull out, she continued as she wanted to win a medal for the country. “When I was warming up before the snatch section, I felt pain on my thigh, I think deep sheathing hit me. They have put ice and some spray, and will see in India what kind of treatment we will do. I am having pain now also,” Chanu said after the event, where she finished fourth.
“It is pain in the glutes and the bones on the right side of the thigh,” she added.
An Asian Games medal is the only silverware missing from the Manipuri’s decorated cabinet. Chanu had finished ninth in the 2014 edition and was forced to miss the 2018 Games due to a back injury.
“I had trained hard but I could not bring the results because of this pain. I tried my best to win a medal for the country but could not,” she said.
