The remaining Rs 15 lakh will be delivered to Lalremsiami directly after the Olympic Games, according to State Sports Minister Robert Romawia Royte.
First woman Olympian from the state
Lalremsiami, a 21-year-old Mizoram native from Kolasib town, is the state’s only female Olympian.
Lalremsiami began playing hockey at a young age and enrolled in a state-run institute in Thenzawl, around 91 kilometres from Aizawl, when she was 11 years old.
She joined the National Hockey Academy in New Delhi in 2016, made her public introduction at the Junior Nehru Hockey Competition in October 2011 and was chosen for India’s under 18 Asian Cup in December 2016.
Lalremsiami First call
In 2017 she got her first call to the senior group and was the first sportsperson from Mizoram to win a decoration at the Asian Games – the silver award for hockey that India had won in 2018.
Lalremsiami won the hearts of the games darlings when she decided to remain back with her colleagues and played the FIH Women’s Series in Japan regardless of the passing of her dad Lalthansanga Zote in June 2019.

She was named the International Hockey Federation’s Women’s Rising Star of the Year award in 2020, making her the first Indian to receive the honor.
She had also been named sports ambassador for Mizoram University in July 2019.
The last Olympian from the state was toxophilite C. Lalremsanga, who addressed India at the 1992 Barcelona and 1996 Atlanta Olympics.
The fantasy of the Indian ladies’ hockey group for an Olympic bronze was run on Friday after it lost to Great Britain 3-4. Anyway, the group won a large number of fans for its spunky battle.
