This was his second gold in Paralympics, with last one coming 12 years ago in Athens.
What is more, he even bettered his own world record while achieving the feat and also set a new Paralympics record.
Jhajharia throw of 63.97m at Rio was better than his Athens 2004 world record by over a metre and a half. He had won gold in the 2004 Athens Paralympics with a throw of 62.15 m.
Jhajharia was competing alongside fellow Indians Rinku Hooda who came 5th and Sundar Singh Gurjar who didn’t start the event.
With Jhajharia’s Gold, India now has four medals in Rio Paralympics with two golds, one silver, and a bronze.
