Meeting Cidade Lisboa: Tokyo Olympics medal prospect Neeraj Chopra in javelin throw action

By Sportskeeda Desk | Last ModifiedJun 10, 2021 23:03 IST

Indian javelin thrower Neeraj Chopra is returning to international competition after 18 months


23:03 (IST)10 JUN 2021

Looks like there was some error in measuring the last throw of Neeraj. He actually had thrown the javelin to a distance of 83.18 meters, which turns out to be his best effort.

22:25 (IST)10 JUN 2021

That's all for today's live blog. Thank you all for connecting. See you next time.

So, no 85+ as we were hoping for, but, Neeraj gets the much-needed competition experience. Let's see how he will perform in his next event which probably should be in Sweden on 22nd June. 

22:13 (IST)10 JUN 2021

Another one in the 78s.. 78.15 meters with his final attempt. Neeraj wins the title with his best attempt of 80.71 meters in his first attempt.  

21:55 (IST)10 JUN 2021

Yet another no throw for Neeraj. He leads the competition with his 80.71 meters throw.

21:46 (IST)10 JUN 2021

Neeraj's personal best is 88.07 meters while Ramos' PB is 80.81 meters. Both the throwers are approximately 8 meters behind their PB today. Surely the conditions are not helping.

21:44 (IST)10 JUN 2021

Neeraj leads the pack with his opening throw of 80.71 meters. 2nd best thrower currently is Leandro Ramos with his best attempt of 72.46 meters.

21:37 (IST)10 JUN 2021

Neeraj launches the Javelin to a distance of 78.50 meters with his 4th attempt.

21:18 (IST)10 JUN 2021

There are strong headwinds i.e wind blowing from directly in front, opposing forward motion that is not conducive for long throws.

21:11 (IST)10 JUN 2021

No throw for Neeraj on his 2nd and 3rd event. 80.71 meters stays his best attempt.

20:50 (IST)10 JUN 2021

80.71 meters by Neeraj Chopra in his 1st attempt

20:32 (IST)10 JUN 2021

Here we have the 1st glimpse of our champion. Having a laugh with his competitors. Should be a good outing for him.

20:28 (IST)10 JUN 2021

The event goes live in 2 minutes from now. Let's go Neeraj!!
