Indian players have returned home after creating history in the Tokyo Olympics. On Monday, the medal winning players were accorded a grand welcome at the Delhi airport. From here the medalists went straight to the Ashoka Hotel, where they were honored by Sports Minister Anurag Thakur. In this felicitation ceremony, all eyes were on the golden boy Neeraj Chopra and when he came on stage, he shared some interesting things about Tokyo.
Golden boy Neeraj Chopra came on stage and showed his medal first and said that since that day I have been walking around with my medal in my pocket. I still want to show him today. This is not my medal, it is the medal of the whole country. Thank you very much for your support.
Neeraj said – could not sleep, could not eat after medal.
Neeraj further said that from the day the medal came, I have not been able to eat or sleep from that day. On the throw of the final match, Neeraj said that I thought this was my personal best throw, so it felt like I have done better. This was the reason why there was no looking back after the throw. I think you give your 100% and don’t be afraid of anyone.
How long is the long hairstyle?
On the question of hair, Neeraj Chopra said that since the age of 10, I have had big hair, but in two three tournaments it started troubling, after which I got my hair short. In the end, Neeraj said that you all had prayers. Looks great. I’ll work harder in the future. By working hard, I will win more medals in the future.
What did Sports Minister Anurag Thakur say?
Sports Minister Anurag Thakur said in his address that this evening is the evening of the players who raised India’s name in the Olympics. I congratulate all the medal winners on behalf of 135 crore people. Neeraj Chopra, you have not only won the medal but also the heart. Our players will do better in the next Olympics. We will leave no stone unturned for you, everything will be provided to you better and better.
