Neeraj Chopra made another history on Sunday when he became the first silver medalist from India at the World Athletics Championships.

24-year-old Chopra clinched the historic silver medal in the javelin final with a best throw of 88.13 m. He is also the first male track and field athlete from India to win a medal at the World Championships.

Legendary long jumper Anju Bobby George was the first Indian to win a medal at a World Championships. She had won bronze at the 2003 edition in Paris.

Chopra had a nervous start to the competition. His first attempt was a foul and then he registered 82.39 m and 86.37 m throws to be fourth after the first three rounds.

His fourth attempt was the medal throw when he jumped to second place with 88.13 m and stayed there until the end. His last two attempts were also fouls.

Defending champion Anderson Peters of Grenada won gold with a best throw of 90.54 m. Bronze went to Jakub Vadlejch of the Czech Republic, who hit a throw of 88.09 m.

Last year, Neeraj became the first Indian track and field athlete to win an Olympic gold medal at the Tokyo Games. Neeraj’s latest achievement set Twitter on fire. Here are the reactions:
