Neeraj Chopra is all set to take part in the finals of the Zurich Diamond League javelin throw event on Thursday, September 9.
Earlier, the 24-year-old star became the first Indian to qualify for the final of the event. However, the going may not be easy for him as he has to get past Jakub Vadlejch, who has a season best throw of 90.88 metres compared to Neeraj’s 89.94 metres.
It’s pertinent to note that Vadlejch won the silver medal in the Tokyo Olympics last year and won the Diamond League in 2016. Curtis Thompson from the United States of America and Julian Weber from Germany are also expected to be tough completion for Neeraj.
Back in August, Neeraj pulled off a throw of 89.08 metres and qualified for the final. In fact, the Young Turk had become the first from his country to win a leg of the javelin throw tournament.
