Neeraj Chopra wins Diamond League 2022

The 24-year-old Indian superstar is now the Olympic champion, World Championships silver medallist and Diamond League champion. All these he had achieved in just 13 months.

India's Neeraj Chopra celebrates his victory in Men’s Javelin Throw during the Weltklasse Zurich 2022, part of the 2022 Diamond League series at Stadion Letzigrund on September 08, 2022 in Zurich, Switzerland.

India's Neeraj Chopra has created history on Thursday as he clinched the Diamond League title in men's javelin throw event, registering the best throw of 88.44m in his second attempt.

It is the first time that an Indian has won the Diamond League title in the javelin throw event. Chopra had started as a favourite in the finals of the 2022 edition and had made a spectacular return to action after a month-long injury layoff in the Lausanne leg of the Diamond League series, where he had registered the best throw of 89.08m to clinch the top spot.
