#4 First athletics medal for India
For years, we have waited for a medal from athletics. The two silvers won by Norman Pritchard more than a century ago are long forgotten!
It is not a hidden fact that athletics is one of the disciplines which has the most number of medal events and as a result the Indian federations and associations have been at it to produce a medallist in that field.
Finally, it seems we might have a medallist in athletics in the form of Neeraj Chopra. Out with injury for over a year, the javelin thrower made a sparkling return to the sport. He has the hunger to win a medal and I am willing to put my money on him!
