New Delhi: In the Tokyo Olympics, Indian javelin thrower Neeraj Chopra created history by targeting gold. In the javelin throw final, Neeraj took the gold with a best distance of 87.58. This gold medal is very special because India has won gold in Olympiad after 13 years.
Discussions of this 23-year-old player are happening all over the world. From the Indian government to the Indian Army, everyone is congratulating Neeraj Chopra by respecting him. However, in the meantime something has happened which has surprised everyone and it is very shameful.
The golden boy did not spare even Neeraj Chopra.
After returning to India, Neeraj Chopra met CDS General Bipin Rawat Rawat, Army Chief General Manoj Mukund Naravane and his family. This is a time where we should celebrate Neeraj’s achievement together, while in the meantime there are some absurd people on social media who are trying to troll him.

Neeraj, who raised the name of the country, is being interrupted by some people for his clothes. In fact, when Neeraj Chopra went to meet top army officers, he wore India jersey and sports shoes with cargo paint. Just about this created a ruckus.
He needn’t have met them in uniform. A mufti with blazer, cropped hair and shoes (with socks) would’ve been more than enuf 😉 No saluting reqd there …

I think issue might not be about him not wearing uniform.
It must be about him wearing folded cargo pants while meeting the CDS & the General in their office.

A befitting reply to the trollers
Some people are not happy with anything in the world and are always complaining. It is very shameful to troll Neeraj Chopra, who took gold for the country. However, the good thing is that not everyone is the same and some such people have shown their real place to those who trolled Neeraj.
Twitter is that place that has a problem with Neeraj Chopra not being in uniform for his Army ceremonials when even the Army doesn’t have an issue, and has clearly made an exception for the Olympic hero.

The people who have a problem cannot even win a gold medal at school level competition.
To give their words any weight would be as useful as Rahul Gandhi as an MP in Amethi.

It’s between the person who won the gold medal and the Army. Even CEO of twitter has no right to tell what is right vs wrong. Let other twitter gurus with free wifi data. Khud to ghar baith ke half pant me office ka kaam kar rahe honge.

Neeraj created history
Neeraj Chopra was at the fore in the javelin throw final of the Tokyo Olympics from the very beginning. He has covered a distance of 87.03 meters in his very first attempt. In the second time, he covered a distance of 87.58. With this, he has thrown the javelin far beyond his qualification record. This is India’s first ever medal in Javelin Throw. Not only this, it is also India’s first medal in athletics.
Received gold after 13 years
This is India’s first gold medal in Olympic Games after 13 years. Before Neeraj Chopra, Abhinav Bindra won the gold medal in shooting in the Beijing Olympics. This is India’s second overall gold medal at the Olympics. Earlier, India has won 8 gold medals in hockey.
