Neeraj Chopra is possibly India’s most accomplished athlete in history, yet even a subtle mention of this title makes the recently crowned World Champion uneasy. Apart from his exceptional javelin skills that have taken the world by storm, Neeraj Chopra is recognized for his humility.

He secured the prestigious world title by launching the javelin to an impressive distance of 88.17m in Budapest on the evening of Sunday. Additionally, he holds the distinction of being the inaugural track and field Olympian from India to achieve the honor of an Olympic gold medal.

There is unquestionably no ambiguity regarding the identity of the most exceptional Indian track and field athlete of all time. However, Chopra, known for his perpetual humility, chooses not to engage in that discussion. Neeraj Chopra made this statement regarding his status as the world record holder in javelin throwing:

“I will never say this, the greatest of all time. People say that just the world Championships gold is missing. I won it now but I have many things left to do and I will focus on that. I would not like to say this. If you want to say greatest of all time, it would have to be like Jan Zelezny.”

Jan Zelezny stands as a renowned javelin thrower hailing from the Czech Republic. He achieved the remarkable feat of setting a world record with a throw spanning 98.48m. Additionally, he clinched gold medals in three Olympic Games and three World Championships. Notably, he serves as an inspiration to Chopra.
