India's golden boy Neeraj Chopra will look to create further history when he takes the field later this week in the Diamond League 2022 Final Weltklasse in Zurich.
Chopra, who became the first track & field athlete from India to win an Olympic gold last year, also became the first from the country to win the Diamond League meet title last week in Lausanne.
The 24-year-old also sealed his first-ever Diamond League grand final spot by winning the meet in Lausanne on August 26. Chopra clinched the first spot in Zurich with his very first attempt, registering a distance of 89.08m.
The top six after the Lausanne leg qualified for Zurich Finals. Chopra finished in fourth spot in the standings with 15 points. Czech Republic's Jakub Vadlejch remained top with 27 points, followed by Julian Weber (19 points) of Germany and Anderson Peters of Grenada (16 points).
Although the world champion Peters finished third in the standings, the Grenadian's name is not included in the entry list for the final. Peters did not compete in Lausanne as well as he was recovering from an injury after he was assaulted inside a boat in his country earlier this month.
USA's Curtis Thompson and Latvia's Patriks Gailums also qualified for Zurich Finals. And currently, Leandro Ramos has also been included in the entry list.
Earlier, in June's Diamond League meet in Stockholm, Chopra finished second with his personal best throw of 89.94m. Chopra will now aim to break the 90m barrier and clinch the title in Zurich.
