Olympic champion Neeraj Chopra’s javelin throw event at the Lausanne Diamond League can be watched in India.
After a month-long hiatus, India’s javelin star Neeraj Chopra will return to action today at the Lausanne Diamond League.The Olympic champion was out of action due to a minor groin injury that he sustained during the World Championships.He started the event off on a bad note with some terrible throws. After three failed attempts, he finally threw the javelin 88.13m to win a silver medal in the World Championships – his first time winning in the championships. He got the injury from the same throw. Neeraj announced that he will not be taking part in the Commonwealth Games 2022 to defend his gold medal in the mega event only a day later. If Neeraj had not pulled out of CWG 2022, the injury would have been worse.
Neeraj has had a terrific season in 2022, which began in June and ended in May.He started off his season at Paavo Nurmi Games after being out of action for 10 months by breaking his own national record with a throw of 89.30m. He then clinched a gold medal at Kuortane Games and then at Stockholm Diamond League, where he threw his career’s best 89.94m to come second behind his rival Anderson Peters.
Neeraj will be aiming to cross the 90m mark at the Lausanne Diamond League.He has been eyeing that for a long time and marked it as an aim this season. He came very close to the 90m mark in Stockholm, missing the mark by 0.6 cms. He will hopefully be able to cross the mark in Lausanne.
