The gold medal in men’s javelin throw F46 category in the Rio Paralympics made Devendra Jhajharia the most successful Indian para athlete ever but he is in no mood to stop here and is eyeing for a treble in the 2020 Tokyo Games.

The 35-year-old Jhajharia, a left-hand amputee, is the only Indian para athlete to have won two gold medals in the Paralympics, the earlier one being the gold medal he won in 2004 Athens.

“I am not stopping here after the Rio success. I have enough gas in my tank and I will definitely go for gold in Tokyo.
