Neeraj Chopra took his parents on their first flight and the javelin thrower expressed his happiness in making his parents happy
Tokyo Olympics gold medallist Neeraj Chopra might have become the talk of the town after his special feat at the Games, however, the javelin thrower still manages to stay grounded and one of his dreams came true on Saturday morning.
Neeraj Chopra took his parents on their first flight and the javelin thrower expressed his happiness in making his parents happy.
Last month, Neeraj had said that he has decided to cut short his 2021 competition season to take some time off. He also said that he will come back in 2022 to compete in the Asian Games and Commonwealth Games.
"Firstly, I want to thank everyone for the love and affection I have received since I came back from Tokyo. I have honestly been overwhelmed by the support from across the country and beyond, and am short of words to express my gratitude to you all," Neeraj wrote in an Instagram post.
"The packed schedule of travel and a bout of illness has meant I have not been able to resume training since Tokyo and therefore, along with my team, have decided to cut short by 2021 competition season to be able to take some time off, recharge and come back stronger for a packed 2022 calendar which includes the World Championships, Asian Games and Commonwealth Games," he stated further.
