India experienced its most successful year Tokyo Olympics, as sports turned over a new leaf in India. Neeraj Chopra won India its second ever individual gold medal at the Olympics, as he finished at the top of the podium in javelin throw.
Chopra also became the first Indian to win a medal in track and field, and had the perfect ending for India at Tokyo Olympics. He came back to much fanfare and praise from the country. Chopra was awarded well and made many of his parents dreams come true, by taking his parents on his first flight ever.
