India’s javelin star Neeraj Chopra took on his official Instagram handle to share pictures of himself enjoying a break after creating history in the Diamond League Finals in Zurich. The Olympic gold medallist javelin thrower became the first Indian to win the prestigious Diamond League Finals title. The 24-year-old shared pictures of himself with a javelin from Switzerland’s Jungfraujoch, which is also the top of Europe.
At the Diamond League Finals 2022, Chopra began with a foul but jumped to the top spot with a throw of 88.44m — his fourth career best – in his second attempt, and that turned out to be his winning effort. He had 88.00m, 86.11m, 87.00m and 83.60m in his next four throws.
