Neeraj Chopra at World Athletics Championships: Tokyo Olympic medalist Neeraj Chopra is on route of creating history at World Athletics Championship as he qualifies for the finals of the tournament within first attempt.

India golden boy was ranked no. 1 in the startles of the Group A and the moment he ran with his javelin in his hands, it landed at the distance of 88.39m, his third career best throw of the year. The automatic qualifying distance was 83.5m and the India golden boy took no time to book his berth in finals.

India is looking forward to Neeraj Chopra to change the history of the country at the tournament as it hasn’t been a very decorated one so far.

In the history of 39 years of WAC, India has been able to get only one medal. It was back in 2003 when Anju Bobby George had clinched a bronze medal.
