Neeraj Chopra became India’s second-ever individual Olympic gold medalist. Abhinav Bindra bagged the country’s first individual gold at the Beijing Games in 2008. Chopra stormed into the finals with a fine throw of 86.65 m. He built a lot of buzz during the qualifications topping the charts. Chopra was considered a medal favorite heading into the finals.
Neeraj Chopra started the finals with a bang. His first attempt clocking 87.03 m easily outclassed his qualification best. Chopra was holding the pole position ever since. All other throwers were not even able to touch the 86 m mark forget crossing 87 m. Chopra went one better in his second attempt throwing 87.59 m. His roar was one of that of a champion. He knew he had done something historic.
