Speaking on the launch, Neeraj said: “This is a small gift from me and I would like to thank the Athletics Federation of India for this gesture. I won’t call you all as fans but friends and you can now access the merchandise from the AFI website. I want to thank you all for the love and support you have shown. It’s nice to interact with all of you.”
Ever since winning the historic gold in Tokyo, Neeraj has been attending felicitating events nonstop with government and private players showering prizes and gifts. However, India’s first track and field Olympic gold medallist promised to be back in action soon.
“I have been attending events nonstop but I will be back in action soon. I can’t tell an exact time frame but I will be back to training. I mostly train at NIS Patiala and the aim from here is to win more medals for India,” Neeraj said.
Tips to beginners
The 23-year-old, who underwent surgery on a career-threatening elbow injury two years ago, threw 87.58 metres in the Tokyo Olympics to become the toast of the nation. The javelin thrower did give some tips to youngsters.
“I would say 13-14 years is the right age to start javelin throw but be careful with the weight. For beginners always use a light javelin as a heavy one can cause injury. Gradually the weight transition will happen. Also it is good to indulge in gymnastics from a young age as it gives flexibility and strength,” he said.
The golden boy also revealed that he will soon start interacting with fans on Instagram.
“I will soon be interacting with fans on Instagram and I will connect with you all live from the platform. Although I am there on Instagram, I haven’t done live interactions and I am looking forward for that,” he said.
When asked if sports didn’t happen, what other profession he would have chosen, Neeraj said, “I love photography and I got a new camera recently. But I am lucky that I am playing the sport and winning medals for India.”
