Chopra breaks Indian record as he clinches Asian Games javelin gold
Neeraj Chopra was ecstatic as he secured India’s first-ever Asian Games javelin gold medal.
The 20-year-old was favourite to win gold and was never seriously challenged in Jakarta as he won with an Indian record of 88.05 metres. He had earlier won the Commonwealth title earlier this year.
“There are a lot of people watching you. I gave a hundred per cent and created a national record. So very happy about it,” Chopra said.
His gold was India’s eighth gold medal of the 2018 Asian Games.
