Indian javelin Champion Neeraj Chopra continued to show his greatness all over the world. After bagging a gold medal for India at Tokyo Olympics last year, he again won the Kuortane Games 2022 held in Finland. Chopra had difficulty in the pacing for throwing the Javelin, though most of them hardly got any momentum before setting off their Javelin to a distance.

Chopra won the Kuortane Games and got the gold medal after throwing his Javelin at a distance of 86.69 meters. He outdid his opponents, Keshorn Walcott, the 2012 Olympic champion, and 2019 World Champion Anderson Peters. Due to the rainy weather and wet conditions, athletes struggled, and many slipped.
