Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, on Sunday, congratulated Olympic champion, Neeraj Chopra, for winning the silver medal at the World Championships in the javelin throw final and said that everyone was proud of his feat.

Chopra scripted history as he became only the second Indian and first male track and field athlete to win a medal in the World Championships by clinching silver in the javelin throw final in Eugene, US. "History scripted at #WorldAthleticsChampionship by @Neeraj_chopra1. Neeraj, we are very proud of you! You have not only inspired a generation to take up sports as a career but also made javelin throw one of the most loved athletic sports in India. My best wishes are with you," Kejriwal tweeted. 

 The 24-year-old Chopra, who had gone into the showpiece as a hot medal favorite, produced a best throw of 88.13metre to finish second. The legendary long jumper Anju Bobby George was the first Indian to win a medal -- bronze -- in the World Championships in the 2003 edition in Paris.
