Neeraj Chopra succeeds in recovering from a foul in his first attempt at the Javelin Throw final, World Athletics Championships 2022 by throwing 88.13 meters.

Olympic champion Neeraj Chopra will take part in his maiden World Championships final after he booked his spot with a stunning first attempt throw of 88.39 meters.

It seems to me that he is one of the most likely candidates for a medal, given that he is only 24 years old.

On Thursday, he threw his third career-best throw in the Group A qualification round. His opening round effort of 89.91m placed him second to defending champion Anderson Peters of Grenada.

The silver medal won by Neeraj Chopra is historic. In 2003, long-jumper Anju Bobby George won a bronze medal for India at the World Championships.

The 88.13m mark of Neeraj Chopra in the final at Hayward Field fell short of Anderson Peters' gold medal-winning mark of 90.54m, while Jakub Vadlejch won the bronze with 88.09m.

Rohit Yadav, another Indian competitor, also reached the finals with his first round throw of 80.42m, finishing sixth in the Group B qualification round.

In his last attempt, he managed 77.32m after fouling on his second throw. During last month's National Inter-State Championships, the 21-year-old Indian recorded a season's and personal best of 82.54m
