The Indian contingent registered the biggest-ever medal haul at the Olympics in Tokyo. Neeraj Chopra's Gold, Mirabai Chanu and Ravi Kumar Dahiya's Silver each, and a Bronze each for PV Sindhu, men's hockey team, Lovlina Borgohain and Bajrang Punia brought India's tally to 7 medals. Besides, this was PV Sindhu's consecutive Olympic medal after Rio 2016, so it was extra special.
However, there were some athletes who came very close to etching their names in history books, missed the mark by a whisker and ended up winning billions of hearts!
