Dominos India has offered free pizzas for life to Mirabai Chanu, who made history by winning the silver medal for India on the first day of the Tokyo Olympics on Saturday.
The 26-year-old became the first Indian weightlifter to win the silver medal in the 49 kg category. She described winning the medal for the country as “a dream come true”.
In a post-match interview, when asked what she would like to eat, Chanu said she would eat pizza since she hadn’t eaten it in a long time due to her exercise and fitness needs. As a result, users on Twitter asked Domino’s India to offer her a free pizza for life.
In response to such a tweet, Dominos India wrote, “We 1000% agree with you. We want @mirabai_chanu never to wait to have a slice of pizza again, so we’re spoiling them with FREE Dominos Pizza for life! #PizzasForLife. “

In response to a user who asked Dominos India for free pizzas for Chanu, Pratik Pota, CEO of Jubilant Foodworks, which operates Domino’s Pizza in India, wrote, “Done! That is the least we can do for someone who has brought so much honor to the country! #MirabaiChanu. “
Pota later also posted pictures of the Dominos India team in Imphal, Manipur, who went to Chanu’s house to congratulate their family members on the weightlifter’s accomplishments and to give them pizzas.
While her exercise and fitness regimen may not allow her to eat pizza for life, the hard-earned medal has certainly given Chanu the right to enjoy as many pizzas as she wants, at least for the next several weeks.
