There is a dialogue in the words of Bollywood’s famous actor Nana Patekar – ‘Giro is like a waterfall that does not let it lose its beauty even after falling’. These lines from the film Krantiveer, India’s number one spearman Neeraj Chopra (Neeraj Chopra) But also suits. This is because what he did on the night of 18th June in Finland, miles away from the soil of his country, is amazing. When his feet slipped, he also fell, but he had done his work before falling. Neeraj of India had thrown his spear so far that whether it is a world champion or someone else, no one’s arms showed enough strength to measure that distance. This was the situation when Olympic champion Neeraj Chopra was far behind his best performance.
During the Kuortane Games in Finland, the rain had left its effect. In such a situation, when Neeraj went to take his third chance, while executing it, his leg slipped and he fell. For a moment it felt as if Neeraj must have suffered serious injuries. But, if the prayers of India were with you, then all remained safe.
Gold had already been put in India’s bag before falling
After slipping in the third chance, Neeraj did not even try his remaining two attempts. He had taken this step to rule out the possibility of injury. But, the bigger reason was that the gold he was looking for for India, he had got it in his very first attempt. Neeraj Chopra threw a javelin up to 86.69 meters to win the gold medal in the Kuortane Games.

This shows that Neeraj of India now has the ability to win the world again and again.
