Indian track and field athlete Neeraj Chopra today mentioned that he is determined to focus on the job of contributing in the upcoming Asian Games and also added that its an honour for him to lead the Indian contingent at prestigious event.
“It is a great honour for me to lead the Indian contingent and carry the country’s flag at such a prestigious event. As far as my preparations for the Asian Games are concerned, I want to say that I am not thinking about any medal or rank, all I want to do is give my best there,” Neeraj said in a statement on Thursday.
“These three-four months in Europe have been very productive and I got a chance to compete in a lot of competitions in between. I am feeling good and as I said, my only target is to give my best in Jakarta,” he added.
Neeraj will lead the Indian contingent at the opening ceremony of the Asian Games. The 20-year-old has top class credentials by virtue of being the first Indian to win a gold medal at a World Championships. This came courtesy his victory at the 2016 World Youth Championships. But Neeraj has continued with his feats in the javelin throw.
