Indian javelin star Neeraj Chopra was named Sportsman of the Decade (Track and Field) at the 2021 Sportstar ACES Awards.
“I’d like to thank Sportstar magazine, my fellow sportspersons and the jury members for choosing me as the Sportsman of the Decade. When I was starting off with the javelin in the last decade, I had some lows in the middle from which I am still learning a lot. I pray that with your continued love and support, I’ll keep making my country proud,” Chopra said on receiving the award.
