Ice cool temperament: India celebrates Neeraj Chopra’s historic World Athletics Championships silver medal

[ad_1]

A nation of billions woke up to good news on Sunday morning as Neeraj Chopra became the first Indian man to win a World Athletics Championships medal. Neeraj, the Tokyo Olympics champion, won a silver medal in the men’s javelin with an 88.13m throw, finishing behind Grenada’s Anderson Peters who retained the world title.

Neeraj Chopra became only the 2nd Indian athlete after Anju Bobby George in 2013 to win a medal at the World Athletics Championships.

Neeraj Chopra, who achieved his personal best of 89.94m at the Stockholm Diamond League last month, has completed the set of world medals, adding the only piece of metal that was missing his decorated cabinet- the world medal. The 24-year-old from India is now the Olympic champion, Asian Games champion, and Commonwealth Games champion to go with the tag of being world athletics championship medalist.

Congratulatory messages poured in for Neeraj Chopra after the young Indian scripted another major landmark in his nascent career.

Chopra began with a foul throw and had 82.39m and 86.37m to be at fourth after three rounds. He got his rhythm back with a big fourth-round throw of 88.13m, his fourth career-best effort, to jump to second place, which he held on to till the end. His fifth and sixth throws were fouls.

Defending champion Anderson Peters of Grenada won gold with a best throw of 90.54m while Olympic silver winner Jakub Vadlejch of Czech Republic took the bronze with 88.09m.

Chopra had topped the Group A qualification round and qualified for the final at second place behind Peters by sending his spear to 88.39m for his third career-best throw. Peters had topped Group B with an effort of 89.91m.
