Neeraj Chopra Confident of Strong Return to Outdoor Competition

Neeraj Chopra, India's Olympic gold medalist in javelin throw, is gearing up for his return to outdoor competition in 2024. The 26-year-old is currently training in Turkey and is confident of being in top form for the upcoming season.

Chopra's preparation for the Tokyo Olympics was hampered by injuries, but he has since bounced back strongly. He won a silver medal at the 2022 World Championships and set a new personal best of 89.94 meters at the Stockholm Diamond League meet.

"I want to be in the best possible shape before Paris," Chopra said. "My training sessions have gone off really well so far. I always lay stress on fitness along with strength and technique."

Chopra is not setting any specific targets for the upcoming season, but he is confident of continuing his good form.

"I have won medals in two World Championships, threw my personal best, won a dream Diamond League title, and even defended my gold at the Asian Games," he said. "All in all, I have been in great space and want to carry forward that momentum from May onwards."

Chopra is aware of the increasing competition in javelin throw, but he is not fazed by it.

"What matters to me is staying 100 percent fit, being consistent during the season, and delivering on the day that matters," he said. "I think there are mistakes to fix and looking at the increasing competition all around, one has to keep improving."

Chopra is a role model for young athletes in India and is an inspiration to many. He is a true champion and a credit to his country.
