<p>This year, the now 25-year-old became the first-ever global champion from India. The season was shaped by Chopra’s first appearance of the year. He defeated world and Olympic medalist Jakub Vadlejch with his first throw of the tournament in the Wanda Diamond League meeting in Doha, throwing his spear at 88.67 meters.</p>
<p>In the same month, Neera set a career-high mark for himself as the world’s top male javelin thrower and became the first Indian to hold that position in track and field. Neeraj withdrew from two tournaments after suffering a muscular injury while training, as he announced in a statement shortly after.</p>
<p>One month later in Lausanne, he won another Diamond League match with 87.66m, after his one-month injury hiatus. In the men’s javelin throw discipline at the World Athletics Championships, Neeraj Chopra won a historic first gold medal for India, making him a world champion. India concluded the 19th edition of the biennial with only one medal.</p>
<p>In addition to his own silver in the 2022 edition in Oregon and Anju Bobby George’s bronze in the long jump in Paris at the 2003 edition, he qualified for the World Athletic Championships and won gold there, making it India’s third medal of the competition. Neeraj’s achievement made him the second Indian, after the renowned shooter Abhinav Bindra, to hold the titles of both the Olympics and the World Championships at the same time. in the age of 23, Bindra won the gold medal in the Olympics and in the World Championships.</p>
<p>With a season-best performance of 88.88 meters, Chopra successfully defended his title at the Asian Games in Hangzhou, capping an Indian 1-2 finish led by fellow countryman Kishore Kumar Jena. It was the pinnacle of Chopra’s season.</p>
<p>Neeraj came very near to breaking the national record with his best-ever throw of 89.94 meters, which he accomplished in the Stockholm Diamond League the previous year.</p>

<p>Technical misunderstanding caused Neeraj Chopra to suffer at the Asian Games in Hangzhou. Because of a technological error on the part of the referees, his first effort in the final, which seemed to be far better than his best, was not recorded. The reigning champion was requested to wait, and there was a long debate after that. Despite this, Neeraj maintained his focus and proceeded to win another gold medal.</p>
<p>Neeraj Chopra had an outstanding year and made the men’s “World Athlete of the Year” shortlist. He was not the winner in the end, as the victors were declared as American sprinter Noah Lyles (Men’s Track), Kenyan marathon runner Kelvin Kiptum (Men’s Out of Stadium), and Swedish Pole Vault standout Mondo Duplantis (Men’s Field).</p>
<p>However, the celebrity from Chandra, Haryana, will focus on the next year. Neeraj will begin his training abroad in Potchefstroom, South Africa, on December 25 and continue until February 29, with the 2024 Paris Olympics looming big.</p>
<p>Following his stay in the African country, Chopra will go to Turkey before attending the Games in Paris. In mid-September, he is anticipated to be in Belgium for the Diamond League finals.</p>
