Neeraj Chopra Men’s Javelin Throw Live Updates, Tokyo Olympics: Neeraj Chopra on Saturday became only the second Indian to win an individual gold in the Olympics, out-performing the field by quite a distance to notch up the first track-and-field Games medal for the country. The 23-year-old farmer’s son from Chandra village near Panipat in Haryana produced the second throw of 87.58m in the finals to stun the athletics world and end India’s 100-year wait for a track and field medal in the Olympics. Chopra won the country’s seventh medal and first gold in this Olympics and joined shooter Abhinav Bindra (2008 Beijing Games) as India’s individual gold winner in the showpiece. With this, the country surpassed the previous best haul of six medals achieved in the 2012 London Games. Neeraj Chopra will be taking the flag for India at the Tokyo Olympics closing ceremony.

Earlier in the day, Aditi Ashok pulled off the best performance by an Indian golfer in the Olympics but the 23-year-old could not clinch the eagerly-anticipated medal. Aditi signed off at 4th place after spending a majority of the four rounds in contention for a podium finish, here on Saturday. The Bengalurean ended two strokes off the pace with a total of 15-under 269, which was just one stroke below the medal bracket. In the final round, she managed a 3-under 68 It was a heartbreaking end to Aditi’s campaign considering she started the day in sole second position.
