Neeraj Chopra gives the Olympic Museum a gift, lets find out?

Indian javelin thrower and pride of India at the global stage, Olympic Gold medalist Neeraj Chopra has gifted his Tokyo Olympics gold medal winning javelin to the Olympic Museum in Lausanne. The news was given by Chopra himself through his Twitter handle.

Former Olympic medalist Abhinav Bindra was also seen accompanying Neeraj Chopra.

“It was an honour to visit and donate my Tokyo2020 javelin to the Olympic Museum yesterday. I hope its presence can inspire the younger generation to keep working hard towards their dreams. The occasion was even more special because I had @Abhinav_Bindra sir with me,” Neeraj’s tweet.

As far as the Museum is concerned, the place is filled with collections of 120 years, which includes the rifle of Abhinav Bindra, who was the first Indian to win an individual Olympic gold at Beijing 2008.

“I can see Abhinav Bindra’s rifle at the museum which gives me tremendous motivation. I hope my javelin has the same impact on future athletes, especially from India,” Chopra said to PTI.

With the new addition of Neeraj Chopra’s javelin in the Museum, Bindra said, “I am delighted that his javelin will now join my rifle at the Olympic Museum, which has been a bit lonely in terms of Indian company so far.”

The International Olympic Committee’s Heritage team is responsible for the management of the museum and all the activities around it.
