VOGUE India featured Pride of Assam Lovlina Borgohain along with Mirabai Chanu and PV Sindhu on the cover, dedicating its 14th-anniversary issue to the women athletes at Tokyo Games.
India recorded its best-ever haul at the Olympics with seven medals — one gold, two silver and four bronze and displayed outstanding performances at the Games this year, among which nearly 49% of the athletes were female.
While weightlifter Mirabai Chanu won the silver medal in the 49kg category, badminton player PV Sindhu and pugilist Lovlina Borgohain bagged the bronze medal.
The trio graced the cover of the latest edition of the leading fashion magazine.
Sharing the picture of Borgohain, VOGUE India tweeted, “Determined to defy the odds, @LovlinaBorgohai’s bronze success at the Tokyo Olympics is not just a story of resilience but one of grit that every girl can aspire to. Read to see more about our October 2021 cover stars.”
It may be mentioned that the Olympics were held behind closed doors this year due to COVID-19 induced restrictions and about 11,000 athletes from over 200 countries competed in the Tokyo Olympics.
