Neeraj Chopra created history on Monday by winning a gold medal in the men’s javelin throw at the Asian Games 2018 in Jakarta. Chopra looked confident from the start with a throw of 83.46m. But it was in his third attempt that Chopra stole the show with a monstrous 88.06m to win the yellow metal. Liu Qizhen of China was a distant second with a best throw of 82.22m while Pakistan’s Arshad Nadeem won the bronze with an 80.75 effort.

The 20-year-old’s winning throw came in his third attempt. He began with 83.46m and fouled the second attempt. He became the first Indian ever to win a gold medal in the javelin throw at the continental games and first India since Gurtej Singh, who won a bronze in 1982 in New Delhi Asian Games.
Chopra thanked his fans and said he is aiming for another medal at the Diamond League final. He also dedicated his victory to India’s Late Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee, who died earlier this month in New Delhi.
