Chopra grabbed the Olympic gold in Tokyo in men’s javelin final with an impressive throw of 87.58m.

But, due to the lack of training and a bout of illness since his return to India forced Neeraj to end his 2021 campaign. He vowed to comeback stronger next season which includes big events like World Championships, Asian Games and Commonwealth Games.

“The packed schedule of travel and a bout of illness has meant I have not been able to resume training since Tokyo and therefore, along with my team, have decided to cut short by 2021 competition season to be able to take some time off, recharge and come back stronger for a packed 2022 calendar which includes the World Championships, Asian Games and Commonwealth Games,” Neeraj had said.
