Neeraj Chopra wins silver medal at the World Athletics Championships

On Sunday morning, halfway around the world from Eugene, he made the fans so nervous that they bit their nails. A country that had only won one medal in the last 30 years of World Championships was hoping to win gold in the men’s javelin. But Neeraj Chopra had a bad day in a big final, which didn’t happen very often. Chopra made everyone wait for about an hour, which seemed like a whole day. He didn’t just do one thing and leave. Not the victory march from start to finish like at the Olympics, Commonwealth Games, and Asian Games. Then it hit me: forget about gold, was Chopra even going to get a medal? Read on…

Neeraj Chopra wins silver medal at the World Athletics Championships

Anderson Peters, from Grenada, wowed the world with three javelin throws over 90m to win gold at the World Championships when even Neeraj Chopra had trouble with the head wind. When he was younger, he was crazy about cricket. Usain Bolt would come along and steal Peters’ love with his world record-setting feats. At first, Peters became a sprinter, but then he got hurt and had to switch to javelin. Read on…

Neeraj Chopra on 90m mark!

It’s not easy to throw a ball 90 metres, but Peters worked very hard to do it. I always say that every athlete has his time to shine. Every athlete has a different experience at each competition. Neeraj Chopra says that we shouldn’t compare athletes.

As it happened at the World Athletics Championships!

Chopra started with a foul throw and then threw 82.39 metres and 86.37 metres to be in fourth place after three rounds. He got his rhythm back with a big throw of 88.13m in the fourth round, which was his fourth best throw of his career. This put him in second place, where he stayed until the end. The fifth and sixth throws he made were both fouls. Anderson Peters of Grenada won gold with a best throw of 90.54m. Jakub Vadlejch of the Czech Republic won the bronze with a best throw of 88.09m. Chopra won the Group A qualification round and qualified for the final in second place, behind Peters, by throwing his spear 88.39 metres, which was his third best throw of his career. Peters’s jump of 89.91m was the best in Group B. Rohit Yadav, the other Indian who competed, finished 10th with a best throw of 78.72m. Rohit’s best throw in the qualifying round was 80.42m, which put him in 11th place overall.

“Neeraj is India’s Dennis Lillee when it comes to javelin throws.”

Long before Neeraj Chopra became a sports star and changed Indian athletics for good, an Australian coach said that the Haryana thrower would do great things. Gary Calvert was Neeraj Chopra’s coach when he won a historic gold medal at the U20 World Championship in 2016. Gary had always thought that Neeraj was a rare talent that the country had never seen before. More to Read

The final for Neeraj Chopra at the 2022 World Athletics Championships: How Neeraj Chopra’s better arm speed helps him throw further

Neeraj Chopra, who throws javelins, has been forced to act like a student in a race against time. This is not his fault. He had to finish a year’s worth of work in about six months. He didn’t have enough time to get ready for the World Championships because he spent so much time celebrating his Olympic gold. Step by step, you must lose weight, get back into shape, build strength, get more flexible, start throwing drills, and improve your technique.

In a sport where injuries are common, you shouldn’t rush your work. Still, Chopra has passed with flying colours. Since he returned to competition at the Paavo Nurmi Games in June, he has won a gold, a silver, finished second in the Diamond League, and broken the national record twice. He is a favourite to win at the World Championships in Eugene because he has thrown more than 89 metres twice this season and had the third best throw of the year.

Chopra has also learned to plan well because she doesn’t have much time. The 24-year-old says he is not as strong as he was at the Tokyo Olympics. Focusing on technique and improving his arm speed has helped him get close to 90 metres.
