I wrote these lines at the behest of my father on his Facebook page, to ring in the historic Gold Medal victory of Neeraj Chopra at the Olympics.
Even before his first event commenced, I had predicted that the young lad would claim his golden share. Blame it on my instincts but I expected nothing less from this world champion who I had read extensively about, over the years. So let’s celebrate his jubilant victory along with his undying hard work and dedication to the sport of javelin.
“His mind calm as a steady river, his movements and rhythm like the very wind, this young man gave us the poetry of pure athleticism.
The Golden Hour of 2020 Olympics came with the force of victory. Hail NEERAJ CHOPRA for becoming the first Indian to win a Gold Medal in Javelin. I’ve never felt the adrenaline rush of victory for the country like this.
KUDOS AND MAY YOU SHINE.”
