Olympic gold medallist Neeraj Chopra continues to make the nation proud. His most recent triumph came at the 2022 Kuortane Ganes in Finland, where Chopra added another gold medal to his tally with a 86.69m throw.

For his amazing achievement, Chopra was lauded with praise from not just Anurag Thakur, the Union Minister for Youth Affairs and Sports, but also from former India cricketer Harbhajan Singh.

The former’s Tweet read, “Gold for Neeraj! He’s done it again, what an incredible champion! Best throw of 86.69m in his 1st attempt at the #KuortaneGames2022. Neeraj Chopra clinches the top spot and goes on to win his 1st medal of the season. BRILLIANT.”


While Harbhajan Tweeted, “Another day, another Gold! Well done champ Neeraj Chopra on the gold at Kuortane Games.”


Chopra’s victory was no easy feat. The incessant rain in Finland made for very challenging and tricky conditions. However, Chopra’s gold clinching throw was also his first try of the tournament. His second throw was deemed to be a foul, while he bore a nasty slip in his third attempt. He subsequently skipped the last two attempts.
