Neeraj Chopra added yet another feather to his cap as he secured 1st position in the Diamond League Final in Zurich on Thursday. As a result, he has become the first Indian to win the Diamond League Trophy. The ace javelin thrower registered a throw of 88.44m in his second attempt and that was enough for him to shine among others.
He had missed the Birmingham Commonwealth Games (July 28 to August 8) due to a minor groin injury he had suffered during his silver-winning performance in the World Championships in the USA in July. Chopra had made a spectacular return from a one-month injury lay-off by winning the Lausanne leg of the Diamond League series and qualifying for the two-day finals. He became the first Indian to clinch a Diamond League meet title.
