The same final took place on the late night of Thursday 8 September in Zurich, Switzerland. The absence of world champion Anderson Peters made the title contender Neeraj’s victory even more certain, and the Indian star did not disappoint millions of fans.

Some such titles won

Talking about the performance, Neeraj did not start well and his first attempt was a foul. However, the Indian Olympic champion immediately showed his brilliance to claim the first position by throwing Javelin 88.44 meters away in the second attempt. Neeraj’s closest rival was Czech Republic’s Yakub Wadlich, who achieved a distance of 86.94m in his fourth attempt. In this final with a total of 6 participants, everyone got 6-6 throw chances, but no one could surpass Neeraj. Even Neeraj had the biggest three throws in the entire final. He also achieved distances of 88 and 87 metres, in addition to 88.44. However, Neeraj’s dream of 90 meters still remained a dream and Neeraj will still have to wait for it.
