Neeraj Chopra Makes History, Becomes First Indian To Win Diamond League
Olympic champion Neeraj Chopra has scripted history yet again by becoming the first Indian to win a Diamond League event. This is also a first for the country. Neeraj opened with an impressive 89.08m which turned out to be the winning throw in the end.
The victory also helped Chopra to qualify for the Diamond League finals in Zurich next month.
He recently skipped the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham due to an injury but, it seems like he is back with a bang.
“I am delighted with my result tonight. 89m is a great performance. I am specially pleased as I am coming back from an injury and tonight was a good indicator that I have recovered well,” Chopra said after the event.
Diamond League Finals will be held in Zurich on September 7 and 8.
