Photography and listening to music are some of the things Olympic champion Neeraj Chopra likes to do during his down time but he is not particularly fond of dancing. Neeraj became the first Indian to win an Olympic gold in athletics at Tokyo 2020.

“I love photography and listening to music. Not particularly fond of going to clubs, I don’t know how to dance at all and I don’t like it as well. I hang out with friends, or going for shopping is something I like,” he told India Today.

“I used to play PubG and used to play Mini Militia as well. PubG got banned, of course, and I have stopped playing games since I got back into training and competitions,” said Neeraj.

Neeraj said that he will be resting as much as possible this month before resuming training with a focus on the big events next year. The Commonwealth Games, Asian Games and the athletics World Championships are all scheduled to take place next year.

“I will take some rest and then restart training because the Commonwealth Games and Asian Games are coming next year and the World Championships as well. This month I will be resting and then restart training, work on my technique and whatever weaknesses came,” said Neeraj.
