Neeraj Chopra, India’s top javelin thrower, achieved a new national record with a throw of 89.30 metres at the Paavo Nurmi Games in Finland. Chopra’s previous national record was 88.07m, which he set in Patiala last March. On August 7, 2021, he won gold at the Tokyo Olympics with a throw of 87.58m. Neeraj Chopra is India’s first Olympic gold medalist in athletics and only the country’s second individual Olympic gold medalist.

Neeraj Chopra clinched silver in the event with his throws. Neeraj was competing for the first time after clinching the historic gold medal at the Tokyo Olympics. Oliver Helander of Finland won the gold medal with a throw of 89.83 metres.

Major Surendra Poonia took to KOO, a popular microblogging site to congratulate Neeraj. He wrote,

“Tiger is back”,  “Golden Army Man Neeraj Chopra created new national record in Javelin by a massive throw of 89.30m at the Paavo Nurmi Games!. Old record (87.58 Mtr) was also on his name He is participating first time in any competition after Olympics. Congrats Champ,” he wrote.
