Tokyo Olympics gold medallist Neeraj Chopra on Wednesday met the nation’s first-ever particular person gold medallist from the 2008 Beijing Olympic Video games, Abhinav Bindra, and his household.
The javelin star from Haryana bought a pet named ‘Tokyo’ as a present from Bindra.
In a tweet after the assembly, Chopra mentioned, “Took my Olympic medal to satisfy its elder sibling from Beijing (Bindra) as we speak.”
“Thank [email protected] Bindra sir for your loved ones’s heat hospitality and for ‘Tokyo’ (the pet) who I’ll cherish perpetually,” he added.
Bindra mentioned it was a pleasure to satisfy and work together with India’s golden man.
“I hope that ‘Tokyo’ will likely be a supportive good friend and encourage you to get a sibling named Paris (wishing him luck for the 2024 Paris Olympic Video games) for him in 2024,” he tweeted.
“The 2 of us agree that the method is the Aim. The method is the Gold. And the Course of is most rewarding. Glad to have spent the afternoon with this younger Gold Medallist,” Bindra mentioned in one other tweet.
