Highlights of the Tokyo Olympics: Neeraj Chopra

Neeraj Chopra had a great start to the day, qualifying for the men’s javelin throw final on his first try, breaking the automatic qualification barrier. He won Group A of the qualification round with a throw of 86.65 metres. The other javelin thrower, Shivpal Singh, was unable to advance to the final.

While his throw put him first in distance qualification, the newcomer was cautious about his performance, pointing out that the main competition would take place on Sunday.

Vetter, who has thrown over 90 metres seven times this year, struggled on Wednesday. His first and second throws were both 82.04 metres. He went over the 83.50m automatic qualification standard with his third and final throw (85.64m).
