Know Tokyo Olympic gold medalist Neeraj Chopra’s Odisha connection


Bhubaneswar: India’s Javelin thrower Neeraj Chopra won a gold medal at Tokyo Olympics 2020 today.

Odisha had hosted the preparatory camp for the Olympics earlier this year, where Neeraj along with his fellow javelin throwers trained at Kalinga Stadium for over two months.

During their camp and their departure, they had heaped praises on the world-class infrastructure, facilities at the stadium complex, and support extended by the Odisha government and its hospitality.

Once again, Odisha feels connected to this immense glory. Earlier, in 2017, Neeraj had bagged his gold at the Asian Athletics Championships held at the Kalinga Stadium.
