By Pti

New Delhi, March 31: Asian Games gold medal-winning javelin thrower Neeraj Chopra on Tuesday (March 31) donated a total of Rs 3 lakh to the central and Haryana state relief funds to combat the COVID-19 pandemic in the country.

Chopra is currently in self-isolation at the National Institute of Sports (NIS) in Patiala after flying back from a training trip in Turkey.

"I have donated a sum of Rs.2 Lakh to #PMCARES fund and Rs.1 Lakh to the Haryana Covid Relief Fund. I hope we all can come together in our own individual capacities to bring relief during this time and help our nation overcome this pandemic," the Commonwealth Games gold-medallist tweeted.

Chopra, who has qualified for the Tokyo Olympics, is considered a strong medal contender. He becomes one among many sports personalities, who have contributed for India's fight against coronavirus.
