Diamond League 2022 Finals Live Updates: All eyes on Neeraj Chopra© AFP
Diamond League 2022 Final Live Updates: Neeraj Chopra has taken the lead in the ongoing Diamond League final as he recorded a throw of 88.44m in his second attempt and followed it up with a throw of 88m in his third attempt. Another historic achievement awaits Olympic champion javelin thrower Neeraj Chopra as he starts as a favorite in the prestigious Diamond League final in Zurich on Thursday. Chopra made an impressive comeback after a month of injury by winning the Lausanne leg of the Diamond League series and qualifying for the two-day final. He became the first Indian to win the Diamond League Meet title. He missed the Birmingham Commonwealth Games (28 July to 8 August) due to a minor injury to his groin during a silver-winning performance at the World Championships in the United States in July.
The 24-year-old Indian superstar hit form soon after returning as he threw the javelin to 89.08m in his first attempt to seal the victory in style at Lausanne on 26 July. It looked like the injury hadn’t happened at all as he had made his third career-best effort.
The Diamond League consists of 32 diamond disciplines, following a championship-style model. Athletes earn points in a 13-series meeting to qualify for the finals of their respective disciplines. The winner of each Diamond discipline in the final will be crowned the ‘Diamond League Champion’.
