The 25 year old said, "it's always very good to get positive feedback, javelin throwers need to run fast for our run-ups, so when an athlete like Michael Johnson talks about my running technique it felt very good."

"Our coach used to tell us that before being a javelin thrower, we are first and foremost an athlete, and being an athlete means to learn the perfect technique in whatever skill we are doing be it jumping, running or lifting," Neeraj also added.


Four-time Olympic Champion Michael Johnson had recently Tweeted two videos of Chopra training and was impressed at the athleticism and running technique of the Indian athlete.

'He’s a javelin thrower! Olympic champion javelin thrower, but a javelin thrower. With sprinter/jumper movement!', said the American legend.
