India's javelin throw star Neeraj Chopra recently discussed the best throw of his career in a conversation with cricketer Dinesh Karthik. Chopra recently withdrew from the Ostrava Golden Spike 2024 as a precautionary measure ahead of the Paris Olympics 2024. The 26-year-old explained that he felt a strain in his adductor muscles during training and decided not to risk an injury with the Olympics just a few months away, leading to his withdrawal from the event in the Czech Republic.

'I am Only Satisfied With One Throw of Mine'

“To date, I am only satisfied with one throw of mine, which was 86.48 m in the World Under-20 Championships 2016. That was one throw where I felt it was a special, unique one, but I have not been satisfied with any throw since. I feel I haven’t got to my peak yet; I have won gold and won a lot of competitions, but I still believe I have not reached my best and I am not satisfied with my throw yet,” Chopra said on Jio Cinema’s ‘Get Set Gold’.

The athlete from Haryana is gearing up to defend his title at the upcoming Olympics in Paris, France, starting on July 26th. Meanwhile, he appeared on Jio Cinema’s ‘Get Set Gold’ for a chat with Karthik. During their conversation, Chopra revealed that only one throw in his career has truly satisfied him, which was at the World Under-20 Championships in 2016.

Chopra described this throw as 'special and unique' and stated that he hasn't yet reached his peak. Notably, Chopra's best career throw of 89.94 meters was achieved at the Stockholm Diamond League in Sweden in June 2022. He has since been aiming to surpass the 90-meter mark and hopes to achieve this milestone at the upcoming Olympics.
