Watch: The throw that gave India its first Gold medal in Tokyo Olympics 2020
New Delhi : Neeraj Chopra looked impressive during the Tokyo Olympics 2020 as he brought India its first gold medal.
The 23-year-old man sealed the first place with a massive 87.58m javelin throw. Neeraj registered his best attempt in his second throw, which was enough to help him finish at the top of the podium ahead of Czech Republic duo Jakub Vadlejch (silver) and Vitezslav Vesely (bronze).
India's official Twitter handle for Tokyo Olympics 2020 shared a short clip of the throw that brought India its gold medal. Check out the video below:

Neeraj's achievement also takes India's Tokyo Games medal tally to seven; the country's highest-ever, edging past the six won at the 2012 London Games.
