The Olympic Bronze Medalist reached Guwahati at around 9.20 AM and was received by Assam CM Himanta Biswa Sarma and other dignitaries.





She received a grand welcome at the airport where while interacting with the press she expressed gratitude to the people of Assam for the support and immense love they showered on her during the Tokyo Olympics and helped in getting the bronze medal. While saying this she also got emotional and expressed grief that she could not bring gold to the state.

Lovlina is now aiming at bettering the colour of her medal in the next Paris Olympics. She also dedicated her medal to the entire nation who rooted for her.
