Hope to clear 90m this year, says Neeraj Chopra

After a historic performance at the Olympics, the 24-year-old Neeraj continued to raise expectations by winning a silver medal at the World Championships and then a gold medal at the Diamond League Finals. Despite these strong performances, Neeraj, however, failed to clear his target of 90 metres.

Javelin thrower Neeraj Chopra, who won a gold medal at the Tokyo Olympics, is hoping to break the 90m barrier with his javelin this year. After a historic performance at the Olympics, the 24-year-old Neeraj continued to raise expectations by winning a silver medal at the World Championships and then a gold medal at the Diamond League Finals. Despite these strong performances, Neeraj, however, failed to clear his target of 90 metres.

Neeraj, who is practicing in England, said in an online conversation, “I hope that in this new year I will finish this question.” He came closest to the goal in the Stockholm leg of the prestigious Diamond League. He then finished second with a throw of 89.94m. Neeraj believes that he could have achieved the feat in Stockholm. He said, “I could have done it if my par was a few centimeters ahead while throwing the javelin. “Yes, I was only six centimeters away,” he said. But for an athlete, it is like a magical achievement. Whenever you talk about a top athlete, we all say that he has covered a distance of 90 metres.

Neeraj, however, is not too worried about it. However, I am not bothered by the pressure of expectations. It will happen when it has to happen. It could have happened last year or even the year before, but maybe God has kept a right time and place for it. Your thinking should be such that you will put your 100% effort to achieve it. I give this hope to those who love me. It plays a positive role.

Ahead of next year’s Paris Olympics, there are several important tournaments including the Asian Games lined up this year and Chopra will consider participating in those tournaments as he starts preparing for the season. He said, “This year I have three big competitions in front of me. World Championship, Asian Games and Diamond League final. “He said,” I have not yet decided when to start preparing. My coach is monitoring the situation in China. Keeping that in mind, I will start my preparation.
