Neeraj Chopra, Tokyo Olympic Gold Medalist, Features in Diamond League Meeting Competitors’ List

New Delhi, Aug 17 (PTI): Olympic champion javelin thrower Neeraj Chopra, who pulled out of the recent Commonwealth Games due to a minor injury, figured in the list of competitors for the Lausanne Diamond League Meeting on August 26. But he is yet to take a call on his participation in the prestigious competition. The 24-year-old had missed the Birmingham CWG due to a “minor” groin strain he suffered while winning a historic silver in the World Championships in Eugene, USA last month. CWG 2022: Why is Neeraj Chopra Not Participating at Commonwealth Games in Birmingham?
