That brings us to the end of our live coverage of the IAAF Continental Cup.

While Chopra failed to deliver, triple jumper Arpinder Singh became the first Indian to win a medal from this event as he clinched the bronze.

Let's hope Singh's medal is the start of many good things for Indian athletics, which is already on the upward curve.

Goodbye!
...
That was a disappointing finish to Chopra's campaign. But he will bounce back!

Champions do have a bad day, and he knows how to come back from it!

He's had a stunning season, with a gold medal at the Commonwealth Games and the Asian Games, all at the age of 20. He has a bright future of him.

If anybody knows how to work harder and be motivated for even better results, then it is Chopra!

He will be back!
...
Final standings in Men's Javelin Throw
...
Rohler, being the great champion that he is, came up with stunning throws, and made the most of his chances.

He made it to the final, being the second-best after Cheng, and just reserved his best for the last.

In the final, Rohler produced a huge 87.07m to take the gold medal!

That is exactly what you expect Olympic champions to do!

Cheng had to settle for the second position, with a throw of 81.81m.
...
The fourth attempt or the semi-finals was contested by Cheng (Asia-Pacific), Rohler (Europe), Yego (Africa) and Peters (Americas).
...
...
...
The top four from each of the four continental groups progress into the semi-finals at the end of the first three attempts!

Neeraj led till the end of the first two throws, but a great comeback from Cheng and a very poor throw on his third attempt cost him badly.
...
Unfortunately, with Cheng snatching the lead for Asia-Pacific from Neeraj, the Indian has been eliminated!
...
Fourth attempt has started!

Asia-Pacific's Cheng is doing wonders now!

He is the best thrower so far in the fourth attempt now, with 83.28m.
...
Rohler has produced 86.39m to be the best from Europe.

Third attempt has just finished!
...
The third attempt is getting very, very interesting now.

Neeraj has now been pushed down to SIXTH!

Chao-Tsun Cheng is leading Asia-Pacific now and is in SECOND POSITION OVERALL!!!!!!

He has come up with 82.06m in his third attempt!
...
Neeraj HAS FOULED HIS THIRD ATTEMPT but is still the best from Asia-Pacific!

He is in THIRD POSITION CURRENTLY!
...
The javelin throwers are representing continents here. So this is not an individual competition, by any means.

That is also the reason why Rohler is now pushed to the fifth position because Europe's Jakub Vadlejch has produced 84.76m in his third attempt to snatch the lead from Rohler!
...
Rohler goes into the lead with 84.30m
...
When the Olympic champion Thomas Rohler is in the field, you EXPECT HIM TO PRODUCE A SHOW OF RESILIENCE!

And sure, he does!
...
It's 79.76m for Chopra in his second attempt!

He really needs to get a higher distance as the Germans can come back any time!
...
That surely is way below his best but even the rest of the field hasn't done well tonight. It's a low-scoring field tonight!
...
And with that, Chopra is currently LEADING THE FIELD!
...
Live coverage has started!

Neeraj comes up with 80.24m in his first attempt! 
...
The shining star of Indian athletics, Neeraj Chopra is set to take the stage once again, and this time, at the IAAF Continental Cup.

Chopra has been one of the most consistent performers for India at the international level, and will be looking to improve his mark, just a week after his gold-medal-winning effort at the Asian Games.

Indian athletics has caught the attention of the world at the 2018 Asian Games in Jakarta-Palembang, where the sport yielded as many as 19 medals -- seven golds, 19 silvers and two bronze.

The shining star of India's show on track and field, among many others, was Neeraj Chopra, who surpassed all expectations to win the gold medal in the Men's Javelin Throw event.

While the 20-year-old was one of the favourites to bring home the top prize from the event, he went on to surpass all odds, as he threw his javelin a whopping 88.06m. With this effort, he broke the previous national record, which he had himself set.
