Chris Hemsworth, who plays ‘Thor’ in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, has praised the iconic Indian weightlifter Mirabai Chanu. Chanu, who won a silver medal at the Tokyo Olympics last year, won the gold medal in the women’s 49kg category at the ongoing Commonwealth Games 2022 in Birmingham. Responding to a tweet that said “time for Thor to drop his hammer” in relation to Mirabai, the Hollywood megastar reacted “lol”. Hemsworth tweeted, “He deserves it! Congratulations, Saikhom, you legend.”

The line borrows from his character in the MCU. In the movies, Thor’s hammer, Mjolnir, can only be picked up by people deemed “worthy”.

Mirabai Chanu won the gold medal in CWG 2022 by lifting a total of 201 kg.


In Birmingham, Mirabai was miles ahead of the competition as she lifted 88kg in the snatch and 113kg in the clean and jerk.

This was her second gold medal at the Commonwealth Games, having already won a gold medal at the Gold Coast in 2018.
