Neeraj Chopra put India on the global map in the javelin throw with his gold medal at the Tokyo Olympics. Ever since his historic triumph, Neeraj was busy with felicitations and functions before taking off for a vacation. Having enjoyed his time off the field, Neeraj expected to return to the National Athletics Camp soon.
A big year awaits the Olympic champion, Neeraj Chopra, as he looks to gain momentum ahead of the Paris Olympics. Neeraj will be defending his Asian Games and Commonwealth title the coming year before he takes off chasing the elusive World Championship gold medal.
“I’m always thinking of the javelin!” Neeraj Chopra
The 23-year-old has emerged victorious in every international tournament he has featured in barring the Worlds and the Diamond League. Neeraj will be looking to change that as he gains momentum in the brand new Olympic cycle. The ace athlete loves the sport so much that he couldn’t stop thinking of it even during his vacations.
Neeraj Chopra took to scuba diving as he enjoyed his vacation in the Maldives. No matter where he is or what he does, his “crush” javelin is always on his mind. As Neeraj enjoyed scuba diving, he decided to recreate his historic gold medal-winning throw at the Tokyo Olympics. The Olympic champion could be seen imitating his second throw which went 87.58m.
“Aasman par, zameen pe, ya underwater, I’m always thinking of the javelin! PS: Training shuru ho gayi hai,” Neeraj wrote as he shared the video.
