    Neeraj gears up for the World Championships

    Neeraj Chopra at the Budapest World Championships

    Just two days before he competes in the most high-profile event of the year, the weight of the country’s track and field hopes rest once again on the 25-year-old’s broad shoulders.

    Distractions are to be expected if you are Neeraj Chopra. When the Olympic javelin throw champion got to the warm up track next to Budapest’s National Athletics Center at the World Championships on Tuesday evening, he dealt with his fair share of them.

    There was the obligatory selfie with Pakistan’s Arshad Nadeem and a few bytes with the media along with his agent. Chopra smiled and gave time. Coach Klaus Bartonietz didn’t seem too enthused and you could sort of see why.

    Neeraj Chopra: In pursuit of 90m

    He might not be able to go anywhere these days without a hundred cameras trained on him, but remarkably no footage exists of Olympic javelin champion Neeraj Chopra’s biggest ever throw. That’s because it didn’t come in competition. Only a few people were around to see it — at a practice session in Tokyo just before the Olympics in 2021.

    Ever since he launched himself into public consciousness as a teenager, Neeraj Chopra has been pursuing one of the most prized barriers in men’s javelin — the 90 metre throw.

    Chasing 90m — Neeraj Chopra’s pursuit of the ultimate barrier in javelin throw
