Neeraj Chopra comes from a traditional Indian joint family. Buy Air Max Shoes Online . In Panipat, the families of his father and three other brothers share what he describes as a happy house. None of his siblings or cousins play sport, but since Neeraj made his foray into Javelin as a 14-year old in 2011, he has had their wholehearted support.I wasnt really into sports till my mid-teens, Neeraj tells ESPN over a crackling telephone line from Poland. I just did some casual running before the local coach introduced me to the javelin and it went from there.Neeraj shot into the national limelight on Sunday morning when news trickled in of his historic gold at the IAAF World U-20 championships in the Polish city of Bydgoszcz.World U20 record!Watch the 86.48 throw of Neeraj Chopra IAAF (@iaaforg) July 24, 2016Not only did he become the first Indian in history to clinch a world championship gold in a field event, Neerajs throw of 86.48m created a new world record, surpassing the previous best by nearly 2 metres. His throw was in fact among the eight best of the year and ahead of the 84.58m thrown by Keshorn Walcott of Trinidad and Tobago to win gold at the 2012 Olympics in London.This was my best throw ever, it was almost four and a half meters longer that Ive ever thrown, even in practice, he says. I have no idea how it happened, everything just happened perfectly during the throw. Maybe because I was representing India, I was feeling a bit inspired from within.I started with a throw of 79.66m. When the spear left my hand for the second throw, I felt this would be something special. But I thought it would be around 83 metres. When I saw the outcome, for a second I couldnt believe it and then obviously, I was ecstatic.Despite the throw being higher than the Olympic qualification standard of 83 metres, Neeraj wont be at Rio because he failed to make the grade by the cut-off date of July 11. He had nearly ensured qualification by clinching gold at the South Asian Federation games in Guwahati in February and equalling the national record with a throw of 82.23 metres.However, he was hampered by a back injury subsequently that took longer than he hoped to heal. Neeraj says the time away also led to some technical faults creeping in before he rectified them over this extended training and competition stint in Poland.Neeraj is an admirer of Czech Republics three-time Olympic gold medalist Jan Zelezny, and hopes to match his idols perfect technique. Zelezny also holds the world record of 98.48 metres, set in 1996, and Neeraj is confident that this performance in Poland will act as a springboard for him to aspire to similar heights. He says the trick is to focus on a goal-oriented training schedule over the next few years.I am not going to Rio but my ambition is to do the best I possibly can at the Tokyo Olympics in 2020, he says. I will go for gold. Cheap Nike Air Max Shoes For Sale . Los Angeles star goalie survived those perilous gymnastics with no problem, and he eventually backstopped the Kings to a skid-snapping win.
