An Asian Games gold, a Commonwealth Games gold, an Olympics gold, a Diamond League title and a World Championship gold – India’s golden boy Neeraj Chopra has won everything that is there to be won as an athlete in Javelin Throw at just the age of 25. Neeraj Chopra will be giving an existential crisis to half of the youth of India of the same age but there’s so much more to be won and conquered for the Haryana lad and the first step of the next journey is the opportunity to repeat his 2022 heroics in the Diamond League in Eugene, United States.

In Zurich last year, Chopra became the first Indian athlete to win a title at the Diamond League with an 88.44m throw. A 90-metre mark still eludes one of India’s greatest Indian athletes but as Chopra mentioned after winning the world championship medal when it has to come, it will eventually come, which it will.

Neeraj will be one of the six athletes in the entry list for the men’s javelin throw event among Anderson Peters (Grenada), Jakub Vadlejch (Czech Republic), Curtis Thompson (United States), Andrian Mardare (Moldova), Oliver Helander (Finland). Chopra’s biggest challenge will be Vadlejch, who won the Zurich leg, the only one Chopra lost in the run up to the final, having won in Doha and Lausanne.

Chopra will be the only Indian athlete competing at the Diamond League finals. Even though long jumper Murali Sreesankar and 3000m steeplechaser Avinash Sable also qualified for the final, they pulled their name from the event in preparation for the Asian Games.
