Neeraj Chopra Makes a Promise to Push Harder In Upcoming Competitions


The Olympic champion javelin thrower Neeraj Chopra won the opening leg of his Diamond League championship defense, but he promised to push himself harder in the remaining matches this season. At the Qatar Sports Club on Friday night, Chopra, who had won the 2022 Diamond League championship trophy the previous year, defeated a star-studded field to win the season-opening first round. Chopra stated, “It was a very difficult win, but I’m thrilled, it’s a great nice start for me.

“This season, I’ll maintain my consistency and fitness and work hard to give every competition my all. Neeraj Chopra, who has his sights set on breaking the coveted 90-meter barrier, continued. “I aim to stay in shape and do more than I can.

According to the international organization, Chopra will compete in the Ostrava Golden Spike competition in the Czech Republic on June 27.

Turkey’s Antalya serves as Chopra’s current training facility.

The Indian superstar stated, “I hope to win the upcoming tournaments and maintain consistency throughout this season.

Chopra’s first attempt, which ranks as his fourth greatest effort, produced his finest throw. The Olympic champion had a large following as his countrymen turned out to applaud him.

Many people showed up here to support me, and they are ecstatic. Due to the size of our nation and the hopes that its citizen’s harbor, it may be particularly challenging at times. More athletes from my nation are now competing with me in the Diamond League and other events.

“I’m fortunate that people believe in me; I feel great. The first meeting of the year in Doha is fantastic, he continued.

Despite a strong lineup that included competitors like Jakub Vadlejch of the Czech Republic, who won silver at the Olympics in Tokyo, and reigning world champion Anderson Peters of Grenada. The throws were fairly lackluster in comparison to last year when both of them launched the spear more than 90 meters.

During the pre-event press conference on Thursday. Chopra even acknowledged the reputation of Doha for producing throws of more than 90 meters.

On Friday, though, a severe headwind made it difficult for the javelin to complete the course.

All athletes found it difficult, but I’m still happy with my performance. It’s a wonderful environment. Today was difficult; next time, I’ll toss more,” Chopra added.

Peters, who had previously won the competition in this location with a huge throw of 93.07 meters, came in third with a more modest throw of 85.88 meters.

“I was expecting for a tailwind, but the wind was a little strong. The top competitors were present, thus it was a good competition, according to Peters.
