India’s star javelin thrower Neeraj Chopra created history by winning the gold medal at the Tokyo Olympics. Neeraj is only the second Indian to win a gold medal in an individual event at the Olympics. Neeraj’s age is just 23 years and he had worked hard to win this medal. Neeraj used to share his fitness videos on Instagram before the Tokyo Olympics. Although Neeraj’s fan following was not less than before, but after winning the gold medal in the Olympics, it has increased manifold. In an interview, when Neeraj was asked about his popularity among girlfriends and girls, he won everyone’s heart with his answer.
In an interview to Times Now, when Neeraj was told that he has become a hero for many people, especially girls, he said that it is all good, but at the moment my focus is only on my game. When Neeraj was asked if he has a girlfriend, he again said the same thing shyly, that right now the entire focus is only on the game. Apart from this, when Neeraj was asked how he feels that he has become a star now.
To this, Neeraj said that he does not want that star-like feeling in him at all. To avoid this feeling, he said that he would focus on his training. Neeraj said that getting a star-like feeling in sports becomes a bit dangerous for any player. Neeraj also counted the further tournaments and also said that after three years he has to go to Paris. When Neeraj was told that he has to win the gold medal in Paris too, he said very politely, he will find out on time, but will work hard from his side.
