List Of World Records Set at Tokyo Olympics

The sporting extravaganza at the Tokyo Olympics drew to a close after over two weeks of high-octane action. The Indian contingent at the Games returns with seven medals, including a historic first gold medal in athletics for Neeraj Chopra in men’s javelin throw. Weightlifter Mirabai Chanu won silver while the Indian men’s hockey team won a bronze medal, ending a 41-year wait for an Olympic medal. The Indians aside, there were several Olympic and world records broken at the Games, including the men’s and women’s 400m hurdles and women’s team pursuit in cycling among others.
