Neeraj Chopra betters his Olympics Gold medal-winning throw to script new national record

Neeraj Chopra today made another national record by throwing 89.03 metres at Paavo Nurmi Games. In the process he bettered his own record of 87.58 metres during the Tokyo Olympics which got him a gold medal.

Notably, the Indian javelin superstar had not competed since winning his historic gold medal at Tokyo 2020.

The Paavo Nurmi Games, a gold event in the World Athletics Continental Tour, is one of the biggest track-and-field competitions outside the Diamond League and this year’s event had a super stacked field.

Chopra, the only Indian competing at the Paavo Nurmi Games, will be heading to World Athletics Championships and Commonwealth Games next.

Neeraj Chopra will also compete at the Kuortane Games in Finland before heading to Sweden for the Stockholm leg of the Diamond League.
