Olden Goldies: Neeraj Chopra and P.V. Sindhu Remain India’s Favorite Sportspersons

In the latest edition of the India Today Mood of the Nation survey, superstar javelin thrower Neeraj Chopra and badminton player P.V. Sindhu have emerged as the country’s most favorite sportspersons. Neeraj Chopra, who made history in 2023 by becoming the first Indian athlete to win the world championship and defend his Asian Games title, has cemented his place at the top of the MOTN ranking among non-cricket sportsmen. With the 2024 Paris Olympics approaching, India is expecting Neeraj Chopra to retain his golden touch and bring home more medals.

In cricket, Virat Kohli’s heroics in the World Cup have catapulted him to the number one spot in the MOTN ranking. Kohli’s exceptional performance in the tournament has made him the most popular cricketer in the country. On the women’s side, Smriti Mandhana continues to hold on to her place among the top sportspersons. Mandhana’s consistent performances and contribution to the Indian cricket team have earned her a special place in the hearts of fans.

Apart from cricket, other sports have also gained popularity among Indian fans. Sunil Chhetri, the captain of the national football team, retains his place in the MOTN ranking. Chhetri’s leadership and goal-scoring abilities have made him a favorite among football enthusiasts. In hockey, captain Harmanpreet Singh and goalkeeper P.R. Sreejesh represent the sport in the ranking. Both players have been instrumental in the success of the Indian hockey team and have garnered a strong fan following.

Wrestler Bajrang Punia, who has been the face of recent protests by wrestlers, also finds a spot in the MOTN ranking. Punia’s achievements in the sport and his activism have made him a popular figure among wrestling fans.

The MOTN survey also provides insights into the popularity of different sports among Indian audiences. Cricket continues to dominate the sports landscape in the country, with a significant majority of respondents expressing their interest in the sport. However, other sports like football, hockey, and wrestling have also gained traction and have a dedicated fan base.

The survey highlights the growing interest in non-cricket sports and the emergence of new stars in various disciplines. It reflects the changing dynamics of Indian sports and the increasing recognition and support for athletes from different sports.

Overall, the MOTN survey provides a comprehensive overview of the favorite sportspersons in India and sheds light on the evolving sports culture in the country. It showcases the achievements and popularity of athletes from various sports and highlights the growing interest in non-cricket sports. With the 2024 Paris Olympics on the horizon, all eyes will be on Neeraj Chopra and other Indian athletes as they aim to bring glory to the nation.
