India's golden boy Neeraj Chopra will be in javelin throw action at the Stockholm Diamond League 2022 - BAUHAUS-galan on Thursday (June 30) at the Stockholm Olympic Stadium in Stockholm, Sweden.
Neeraj, who won a historic gold medal in Tokyo Olympics 2020, broke his own national record with a throw of 89.30 meter at the Paavo Nurmi Games in Turku, Finland on June 14, but that effort landed him only a silver.
However, four days later on June 18, the 24-year-old Neeraj won his first medal of the season at the Kuortane Games in Finland with a throw of 86.69m. Now, he looks to secure his first medal at the Diamond League.
In Stockholm, Neeraj will be up against the two other Tokyo Olympic medallists Jakub Vadlejch (silver) and Vitezslav Vesely (bronze), while the strong field also includes Germany's Julian Weber and Finland's Oliver Helander.
