Neeraj Chopra is the toast of the nation right now. Why would he not be? The man won gold in the javelin event and that is no mean achievement.
He had the season’s best throw which pretty much sealed the deal. Twitter meanwhile is going crazy and for good reason too. The country has a new hero to praise and he deserves all the accolades:
How many youth in India have ever touched a Javelin?
This accomplishment of Neeraj Chopra is a historical moment for Indian sports and in particular Indian athletics
So proud of you @Neeraj_chopra1
You are the star! 🇮🇳 https://t.co/FS4RsRTQ0l

Neeraj Chopra is a boy to be nurtured. One of the only few gems, natural raw talent in athletics in our country. Give him all he need and he might get something in Olympics.. What a boy. Panipat ka chhoraa
