PANJIM: LIC felicitated the gold, silver and bronze medal winners of the Tokyo Olympics in different streams. 

The nation registered its best ever performance with the haul of seven medals including a gold.

To encourage the players who reached up to the 4th position, but missed the bronze medal, they too were felicitated by LIC. 

Events were organised in the home towns of the players and the cash award was handed over to the players by senior dignitaries of LIC. 

“Nothing succeeds like success! After Tokyo Olympics 2020, our performance in recently concluded Tokyo Paralympics 2020 was indeed stunning. This is a historic event with India registering its best ever performance which will be an inspiration for the future generations. The grit and excellence displayed by our athletes is admirable.,” stated the press release issues by LIC.

Honouring the Paralympic winners in a manner similar to honouring the winners of Tokyo Olympics encourages all such athletes to excel in their field. LIC honoured not only nineteen medallists with cash prize but also felicitated the seven players who occupied 4th position in their respective events.
