Neeraj Chopra: The spear that ripped the air for 6 seconds fell 88.39 meters away.. Watch the video of Neeraj Chopra’s perfect target

India’s golden boy Neeraj Chopra is one step away from a medal at the World Athletics Championships. He qualified for the finals on Friday by topping Group A of the Javillon throw event. He made a brilliant throw of 88.39 meters in the very first attempt and got a ticket for the final. Neeraj, who proudly widened India’s chest by winning a gold medal in the Tokyo Olympics, is expected to throw a golden throw here too.

In the video, it can be seen that while taking long strides, when Neeraj Chopra throws the javelin, he keeps tearing the air for about 6 seconds and covers a distance of 88.39. This is Neeraj’s third best shot. If he also covers 90 meters in the final of the tournament, which is to be held on Sunday, then the medal is expected to be confirmed. In fact, Anderson Peters (89.91) of Granada has thrown the javelin farther than him.

Apart from Anderson from Group 2, Germany’s Julian Weber finished second with 87.28m. The medals of these 3 are believed to be confirmed. Rohit of India has also reached the final in this event. It is noteworthy that Neeraj’s best is 89.94 meters. He had a throw of 83m at the 2017 London World Championships. He also missed the 2019 World Championships in Doha, as he was recovering from elbow surgery.

Neeraj Chopra recently set a new national record. Despite this, he could not win the gold medal. Lal of Haryana had to be satisfied with the silver medal. During the Paavo Nurmi Games in Finland, he threw 89.03 meters long, before throwing 87.58 meters away, which earned him gold at last year’s Olympics.
