Struggled a bit with the conditions, but extremely happy to win a 🥈medal for India at the #WCHOregon22. Congratulations to Anderson Peters and Jakub Vadlejch on an incredible competition.— Neeraj Chopra (@Neeraj_chopra1) July 25, 2022
Thank you to everyone at home and at Hayward Field for your support. 🇮🇳 pic.twitter.com/co2mGrx3Em
Similarly, Indian Super League’s Instagram handle also posted a story about this marvellous win. The only issue? People couldn’t find Neeraj Chopra in the picture, instead it was a picture of Neeta Ambani, Founder & Chairperson of FSDL.
Considering the caption was essentially Neeta Ambani’s statement on Neeraj Chopra’s historic win, the photo made some sense. But since there was no other post praising Chopra on the win, the Internet was having none of it. And soon enough, comments and Tweets started pouring in.
Shambolic! The effort of the player is insulted by putting this lady’s picture who may have invested some money but gave no effort on the field. This is the real face of FSDL. Capital centric. https://t.co/XT0u5HDHMw— Tirtharaj Roy (@humorousraj) July 24, 2022

On serious note this can be regarded as disrespect towards @Neeraj_chopra1
Why Neeraj look so different here ? https://t.co/MoBtgnDbRH— Soni Raj Singh (@SRKkiSoni) July 25, 2022
