Eugene, USA: Olympic champion Neeraj Chopra on Sunday made history again bagging the silver medal in the men’s javelin final at the World Athletics Championships.
Though two of his attempts were marked foul, a throw of 88.13m in his fourth attempt was enough for the 24-year-old to bag silver in his first-ever finals.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday led the nation in congratulating Neeraj Chopra on winning a silver medal at the World Athletics Championships in the United States in a tweet.
A great accomplishment by one of our most distinguished athletes!
