Legendary Milkha Singh’s famous wish of seeing India win an Olympic medal in track and field event could not be fulfilled in his lifetime, but javelin thrower Neeraj Chopra, who won the gold medal with a throw of 87.58m at the Tokyo Olympics, has done it barely two months after the death of the Flying Sikh on June 18, 2021.
Jeev Milkha Singh thanked Olympic gold medallist javelin thrower Neeraj Chopra after he dedicated his gold to legendary Milkha Singh.
Milkha Singh’s constant refrain in his lifetime was that he wished to see India winning Olympics gold in track and field events before he breathed his last.
Jeev said, “Dad from above is crying in joy. His dream has come true. Proud moment for India. I salute him for his determination and hard work. God bless him.”
The Flying Sikh came close to win an Olympic medal in the 1960 Games only to finish 4th in the final of men's 400m.
