Its birthday time for India’s best athlete on the track & field circuit. Neeraj Chopra, India’s best bet for an elusive Olympics medal celebrates his birthday today. Chopra who was born on 24 December, 1997 in Panipat, Haryana rose to fame when he won a Gold Medal in the Javelin throw event of the 2016 World Under-20 Championships in Bydgoszcz, Poland. He made a World Junior Record at that meet too.
After that he didn’t look back and has been regularly upping the ante with a Gold medal each in Asian Athletics Championship held in Bubaneswar, 2017; 2018 Commonwealth Games held in Gold Coast, Australia; and then with a stupendous throw of 88.06m in Jakarta, Asian Games of 2018.
Birthday wishes were pouring in for the poster boy of Indian athletics on various social media sites.
