Neeraj Chopra shatters own National Record


Neeraj Chopra rewrote the national record with a throw of 89.30 metres at the Paavo Nurmi Games in Turku, Finland.

Olympic Champion Neeraj Chopra settles for a Silver Medal with a New National Record Throw of 89.30m at the Paavo Nurmi Games in Finland.

With only his second throw in international competition since the historic night in Tokyo, Chopra came up with an effort of 89.30m.

The throw was bettering his own national record by more than a metre.And just like his throw in Tokyo, he lifted both his arms to celebrate.This time, it was indeed a National Record.

The gigantic throw helped him finish second on the podium at the Paavo Nurmi Games behind home favourite Oliver Helander.

Who produced a personal best throw of 89.93m. World champion Anderson Peters of Grenada was third with a throw of 86.60m.

Chopra, whose first throw travelled a distance of 86.92m, could not manage a legal throw in his third, fourth and fifth attempts before finishing off.

Yet, the result will come as a massive boost ahead of next month’s World Championships & also an affirmation that he is on the right track to breaching the hallowed 90m-mark.
