Neeraj Chopra, who won a landmark track-and-field gold medal for India at the Tokyo Olympics earlier this year, was gifted a personalised XUV700 by Mahindra Group chairman Anand Mahindra on Saturday.

Receiving the Mahindra XUV700, Neeraj Chopra wrote, “Thank you @anandmahindra ji for the new set of wheels with some very special customisation! I’m looking forward to taking the car out for a spin very soon”.

The 23-year-old Chopra, who earned the historic gold medal in javelin throw with a staggering throw of 87.58m, posted a picture of his brand new car, boasting a sticker of javelin throw along with the numbers “87.58”.

Sumit Antil, who won a gold medal in the F16 men’s javelin throw at the Tokyo Paralympics, also received the same model of car.

Reacting to the tweet, Mahindra said, “Thank you for giving us the privilege of sharing our very own ‘Javelin’ with you! May the Force be with you …always.”

Earlier, Anand Mahindra had announced that he would gift the all-new Mahindra XUV700 to the javelin players as a goodwill gesture following their remarkable performances in the Tokyo Olympics and Paralympics this year.
