Aug 30, 2021 12:40 IST | By Editorji News Desk

Just like India ruled the Olympic Javelin podium with Neeraj Chopra winning the historic Gold, in the Paralympics too, India dominated the Javelin throw stage.

India not only clinched the Javelin throw silver but also won the bronze medal. While Devendra Jhajharia, India's most successful Paralympian who already has 2 individual Paralympic gold medals in his kitty, bagged the silver medal with a 64.35 mt throw. Sundar Singh Gurjar, the 2017 world champion, won the bronze with a throw of 64.01 mt.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi spoke to both the para-athletes on call and congratulated them on their achievement. PM also tweeted to praise Sundar Singh's remarkable courage and dedication and went on to hail Jhajharia's performance.
