Neeraj Chopra, a gold medal winner at the Tokyo Olympics, met Abhinav Bindra and his family in Chandigarh on Wednesday. The Beijing Olympics champion shooter sent the javelin star a puppy named "Tokyo" as a present.
From this extremely special meet, Neeraj Chopra shared some pictures where he captioned them writing- “Started my time off by spending a wonderful afternoon with @abhinav_bindra sir and his family. Was able to introduce my medal to its elder sibling from Beijing and also enjoyed the warm hospitality of the Bindra family.
Thank you sir for hosting us and for introducing me to 'Tokyo', the newest member of the Chopra family!”
When Neeraj won the javelin final in Tokyo 2020 on August 7, he joined Bindra as India's second solo Olympic gold champion.
