Stockholm Diamond League to rewrite the national record he set at the Paavo Nurmi Games in Finland in his season-opener.

A total of 32 javelin throwers will be competing in the two qualifying groups. From there, the 12 best will qualify for the final scheduled for Saturday.

His main competition will be from the reigning world champion Anderson Peters of Grenada, who has breached the 90-mark thrice this year and pipped Neeraj Chopra to gold in Stockholm. Also in the race for podium finish are Finland’s in-form Oliver Helander (who had stunned both Neeraj and Peters at the Paavo Nurmi Games), Tokyo 2020 silver medallist Jakub Vadlejch of the Czech Republic, Germany’s Julian Weber and London 2012 champion Keshorn Walcott. Rohit Yadav is the other Indian for the javelin throw event.

It is the second time that Neeraj Chopra is taking part in the senior World Athletics Championships. Neeraj had recorded an 82.26m throw and failed to qualify for the final at the 2017 world championships in London. In 2019, Neeraj Chopra was forced to sit out due to elbow surgery.

If Neeraj Chopra does manage to win a medal, he will be only the second Indian athlete to do so at the championships after Anju Bobby George, who clinched a women’s long jump bronze in Paris in 2003.

Meanwhile, India’s national record holder Annu Rani will be in action in the women’s javelin throw final, after she finishing 5th in her group (B) qualifiers with the best throw of 59.60m.
