Neeraj Chopra will compete on Friday in the Lausanne Diamond League.

Olympic champion javelin thrower Neeraj Chopra will compete in the Diamond League Meeting in Lausanne, Switzerland, on August 26 after recovering from a “mild” groyne strain he sustained last month.

Chopra is currently in fourth place in the standings, so a strong performance in Lausanne might guarantee him a seat in the Diamond League Finals on September 7 and 8 in Zurich. The top six finishers qualify for the Zurich Finals. The final stage, which takes place in Lausanne, features a men’s javelin throw competition.

Due to an injury he sustained during the World Championships final on July 24 in Eugene, USA, where he had earned a historic silver medal, the 24-year-old Chopra withdrew from the Birmingham Commonwealth Games last month.

Just two days before the commencement of the multi-sport competition at the Birmingham CWG (July 28–August 8), he announced his withdrawal after his medical team recommended a four-week break. Then he received treatment in Germany.
