Neearj Yadav

In the words of Neeraj Yadav "I used to consider myself a weaker person. I used to be scared. But sports boosted up my co nfidence and motivated me. Now when I come to the ground, I do not consider myself a person with an impairment. I always feel that I can achieve what I have dreamt of." He has also competed in wheelchair tennis. His ambition is to win a medal at the Paralympic Games. He plans to compete in the discus throw at the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo. His main event originally was the F55 javelin but was not listed for the Games. "As discus throw is different than javelin, I had to work more on my back movement. I am now more focused on technique." Hear him talk about his ambitions for the Olympics 2021 (Tokyo) with Rica Roy in the Podcast Guts , Gumption and Glory – The voice of Indian Sports on the RedFM India App
