Olympic gold-medallist javelin thrower Neeraj Chopra on Friday described his German coach Klaus Bartonitz as the “best” for himself and said he would like to continue his stellar partnership at the 2024 Paris Games.
During a panel discussionIndia Today Conclave’, Neeraj said Bartonitz’s methods suit him because the biomechanical experts crack jokes even during intense sessions, making training a whole lot more enjoyable.
“At times, I don’t like to be too serious during training sessions. Koi coach aise hota hai, danda pakkarke piche khade hai (There are some coaches who stand with a stick). But Klaus sir is different,” The 23-year-old said he sat down with Abhinav Bindra, India’s first individual Olympic gold medalist.
“We are serious when we have to be serious and intense, but sometimes he cracks jokes during sessions and that makes training enjoyable. His training style suits me and I have a great bonding with him. I want to continue training with him for the next Olympics as well,” said the young star, who created history by winning India’s first athletics medal at the Tokyo Olympics.
