Neeraj Chopra thanks fans for support after scripting history at World Athletics Championships:

[ad_1]

India’s javelin throw star Neeraj Chopra on Monday, July 25 thanked his fans and well-wishers for their support after winning a historic silver medal at the World Athletics Championships. Neeraj acknowledged the incredible support he received at the Hayward Field in Eugene, USA.

Neeraj Chopra became only the second Indian athlete after Anju Bobby George in 2003 to win a World Athletics medal as he took the silver medal in the men’s javelin. Neeraj, uncharacteristically, began slow but his 4th throw of 88.13m won him the silver as he finished behind Grenada’s Anderson Peters who became only the 2nd man to defend his world meet crown after throwing in excess of 90m three times.

Neeraj took to social media to congratulate Anderson Peters and Jakub Vadljech, who won the bronze, sharing the podium with the Indian star for the second successive time after the Tokyo Olympics silver. Vadlejch was at the silver medal position with his best throw of 88.09m, but Neeraj held his composure and went past the Czech Republic star in his 4th throw.

Neeraj also conceded that the conditions in Eugene were difficult to handle as the wind was blowing toward the thrower’s direction.

Neeraj began with a foul and then managed only 82.39 in his second attempt, giving fans a few nervous moments.

“Struggled a bit with the conditions, but extremely happy to win a silver medal for India at the #WCHOregon22. Congratulations to Anderson Peters and Jakub Vadlejch on an incredible competition,” Neeraj said in his tweet.

“Thank you to everyone at home and at Hayward Field for your support,” he added.

Neeraj Chopra will be seen in action next at the Commonwealth Games where he will have another blockbuster duel with Anderson Peters. Notably, Neeraj won the Gold medal in the 2018 edition in Gold Coast where Peters finished 3rd.

Neeraj Chopra will be looking to get past the 90m-mark in Birmingham but the Tokyo Olympics champion stressed that he is not focused on breaching the coveted mark but being consistent at the highest level.
