Neeraj Chopra’s Message To Youngsters On Independence Day: “Don’t Take Shortcuts”

On Sunday, India’s Tokyo Olympics heroes, including gold medalist Neeraj Chopra, visited the Red Fort’s 75th Independence Day ceremonies. The great javelin thrower, who has become a national hero after smashing the world record in Tokyo, had a message for the children, advising them to “believe in yourself, trust in your coaches, and don’t take shortcuts.” Neeraj Chopra, speaking before the national flag-raising event, said it’s a new experience for him because he used to watch the ceremony on TV and now, he’ll be there.

Neeraj Chopra praised PM Modi for providing all the athletes “an opportunity to come to be a part of these August 15 festivities” in an interview with NDTV.

“To be honest, I’m not used to getting up that early,” Neeraj laughed.

On Saturday, the 23-year-old verified what numerous publications had stated. The gold medalist from Tokyo admitted to having a fever but claimed he was “feeling good now but rest is required.”

At the Tokyo Olympics, Neeraj Chopra made history by becoming the first Indian to win an Olympic gold medal in athletics.

PM Modi praised the Olympians for bringing honour to the country in his Independence Day speech on Sunday. The sportsmen had “not only captured our hearts, but also inspired our young generation,” according to the Prime Minister.

India won the most medals it has ever won in the Olympics, with a total of seven, surpassing its previous best of six at the 2012 London Games.

“There was a period when sports were not thought of as mainstream. Parents used to tell their children that if they continued to play, they would ruin their lives. Within the country, there is now a greater understanding of sports and fitness. This time around, we’ve seen it at the Olympics “PM Modi stated.

“It’s a critical juncture in our country’s history. In this decade, we must intensify our efforts to attract talent, technology, and professionalism to the country’s sports.”
