Indian athletics dreaming of Olympic medals (Part 2)

Whether Chopra can rewrite history or not, the best achievement of the season was 86.47m at the last Commonwealth Games. Chopra’s victory will be the driving force for young campaigners in India and help them believe that “Yes we can”.

“We have athletics medals in all competitions, at the Asian Games, the Commonwealth Games, the world championships,” Chopra said. “Therefore, India’s main goal is to win the Olympic medal. I cannot imagine what that would mean for Indian athletics. People still tell me that whoever wins the Olympic medal will probably become the god of athletics. ”

The truth is so because although Singh and Usha are only 4th in the Olympics, the Indians know them. If the 4th place at the Olympics were to be the same, a medal would be of great significance for Indian athletics.

With Chopra, he comes from the northern state of Haryana, which is famous for producing excellent Indian kabaddi wrestlers and athletes. Therefore, it is difficult to understand that he again held javelin instead of becoming a wrestler or playing kabbadi.

At least javelin throwing is a great hope for Chopra, though he will have to compete with many opponents in Tokyo in 2020. For the time being, he will attend the Doha Diamond League athletics tournament and a few other tournaments first. when the Asian Games take place later this year.

 “Focus and practice are the most important. I have to give up everything and just focus on practicing, ”Chopra said. “To achieve something great, I need many other factors. I have to achieve more than 90m in tournaments. ”

One of the obstacles for Chopra is that he has not had the opportunity to practice abroad, particularly Europe. The climate here can help him achieve better, instead of overheating like in India. In general, to achieve the goals that India has pursued for a long time, Chopra will have to overcome many difficulties from the yard, diet, training equipment. Even at the beginning of his career, he didn’t even have a coach or the opportunity to rub himself. ”
