Olympics, India

India finished the Tokyo Olympics in high spirits yesterday by bagging the highest number of medals so far. 23-year old Neeraj Chopra won India’s first-ever gold medal in Athletics in the Javelin throw category, thus making him the second individual gold medalist for the country. India won a total of seven medals, surpassing its previously personal best of six medals won in the  2012 London Olympics. With seven medals, including one Gold, two Silvers and four Bronze medals, this edition was India’s best in terms of the medal tally. India also celebrated quite a few first-timers in the Olympics, amongst other celebrations. PV Sindhu, who won Bronze in the women’s singles event, became India’s first woman to win two individual medals at the Olympic Games and to win medals in back-to-back editions.
