But do you know that due to which Neeraj has gained popularity, he came by mistake in it. Yes, it has been disclosed by Neeraj himself. He said in an interview given to Aaj Tak, ‘I came by mistake in the javelin throw. Wasn’t already in mind. I went to the stadium for fitness and saw the seniors throwing javelin there and then I started too.

What was going through your mind when you stood at the top of the podium yesterday? On this question, Neeraj said that it was a hair-raising moment. At that time there was a lot of enthusiasm from inside.

On how he feels after winning the gold, Neeraj Chopra said that I slept with the medal. I have done something for my country which will be memorable.

How was the journey of Neeraj Chopra?

This 23-year-old Neeraj Chopra said that I accidentally came in the javelin throw. Wasn’t already in mind. Because if someone from a family or village is interested in sports, but neither my family nor anyone from the village is interested in sports. Just went to the stadium for fitness and from there the journey started.

Neeraj said that it was not as if Javelin was started with some deliberate thought. Went to the stadium for fitness, but there I saw my seniors throwing javelin and then I started. But it is definitely that from the day I started I worked hard. He used to take a bus or lift from the village to the stadium.

Neeraj further said that then people used to say what he was doing. It’s going like this. But that didn’t come to my mind. I never thought that I would go to this level and win a medal. It was a simple task, to go to the stadium everyday and give 100% in training. I kept doing this and because of this I was able to reach here.

Was hoping to win gold?

Neeraj Chopra said that he was encouraged after the qualification round. I threw easily then and went a long way. After that it seemed that something good was going to happen in the final and maybe I should do my personal best too. But gold was not expected.

He said that the world ranking does not matter in the Olympics. It’s a day to day thing. Whose day is it? Whose body is moving that day? And now I am sure.

What’s the goal next?

On this question Neeraj Chopra said, ‘Javelin throw is a technical event and a lot depends on the form of the day. So my next target is to cover 90 metres.

He said, ‘I was only focusing on the Olympics this year. Now that I have won the gold medal, I will make plans for future competitions. After returning to India, I will try to get visas from abroad to participate in international competitions.
