The city of Panipat is known for its battles, and in the modern era, it is referred to as the city of weavers, but now the historic city will be known for its Golden boy Neeraj Chopra, who clinched the gold in the Tokyo Olympics 2020 and became the first Indian to win a gold medal in Athletics. He also became the second Indian individual player to win a gold medal in the history of the Olympics.
The whole country praised and celebrated the javelin thrower Neeraj’s achievement and poured a bunch of prizes for the only Indian gold medalist of the Tokyo Olympics. Mahindra Group chairman Anand Mahindra, who is known for promising and presenting the latest Mahindra cars to young players, again extended a special gesture by offering a yet-to-be-launch Mahindra XUV 700 to Neeraj Chopra.
Previously, Anand Mahindra had presented Mahindra Thar to the six young Indian Cricket players who performed well under pressure and turned the impossible situation into possible. Since then, it has become a ritual where people tag Mr Anand Mahindra in tweets and request him to offer a car to extraordinary young players. Mr Mahindra fulfils most of the requests, and this time, he has promised to gift Mahindra’s upcoming car XUV 700 to Neeraj Chopra.
