News Daily Digital Desk: Neeraj Chopra set a precedent by winning gold in javelin at the Olympics last year. This time, Neeraj set a precedent by winning gold as the first Indian in the Diamond League. However, the beginning of the Diamond League held in Zurich was not easy. Instead, he went back a bit. Vadlerich was leading at the end of the first round. But in the second round, the Indian athlete is found in a rhythm. The best throw of the day also came from Neeraj in the second round. He threw the javelin 88.44 meters. Finally, the gold came in that throw.

Neeraj threw 88 and 86.11 meters in the javelin in the third and fourth rounds respectively. 87 and 83.6 respectively in the last two rounds. Neeraj proved why Indian athletes were considered favorites in the Diamond League by winning gold. He was suffering from injuries. He could not even get to the Commonwealth Games. Neeraj’s comeback from injury was great.

Neeraj started preparing to return to the track after being knocked out of the Commonwealth Games. He became the first Indian to qualify for the Diamond League finals. He qualified for the finals with a career-best third throw at the Diamond League in Lausanne in August. He went to the final after getting the first place in the Diamond League by throwing the javelin at a distance of 89.08 meters.

However, Neeraj was nowhere near his best form on Thursday. Earlier this year, he threw the javelin at a distance of about 90 meters, but he had to stop at 88 meters in the Diamond League final. Despite that, his rivals could not get ahead of Neeraj. Neerj’s opponent Jakub Vadlerich of the Czech Republic won silver with a throw of 86.94 meters. Germany’s Julian Weber is third.
