Weightlifter Mirabai Chanu brought India the first medal in the ongoing Tokyo 2020 Olympics. She bagged silver in the 49kg category. After the win, the 26-year-old had said in an interview that she would eat "a lot" of pizzas now. Paying heed to her wishes, Domino's Imphal branch went to her house and delivered pizza boxes. Plus, they offered her free pizza for life.
