Meet the next Neeraj Chopra of India: Yashveer broke the 80m barrier recently
India’s gold medalist Neeraj Chopra became a big figure after his gold medal at the Tokyo Olympics 2020 and the javelin thrower will be back when his season begins at an event in Finland on June 14. Neeraj is a leader in his athletics like no other before he brought India an individual gold medal in the sport. In fact, he is only the second individual gold medalist from India after Abhinav Bindra won the honor in the 10m rifle shooting at the 2008 Beijing Games. Neeraj has already established his legacy as after winning the gold medal in Tokyo, many kids are taking up the sport and trying to be the next Neeraj Chopra from India. There are hordes of parents at Veraua academies who are bringing their kids to coaches and asking them to be the next Neeraj, which is a positive sign in a country like India where cricket rules.
