Neeraj Chopra, men’s javelin event, Paavo Nurmi Games Live: After a precautionary break to address an adductor problem, Olympic champion Neeraj Chopra returns to action on Tuesday in the men’s javelin throw event at the Paavo Nurmi Games in Turku, Finland.

Neeraj will be part of an eight-man squad including Anderson Peters, Max Dehning and local favorite Oliver Helander. This event will be Neeraj’s third of the year after the Doha Diamond League and the Federation Cup. Neerah clinched second place in Doha with a throw of 88.36m before a throw of 82.27m saw her claim first place at the 27th Federation Cup in Bhubaneswar last month.

Neeraj had clinched second place at the 2022 Paavo Nurmi Games with a throw of 89.30 m, bettering the national record at the time. He then raised the bar to 89.94m at the Stockholm Diamond League that same year. Neeraj did not participate in the 2023 edition of the Games in Finland due to injury.

The Paavo Nurmi Games are Finland’s largest summer athletics competition and have been held annually since 1957. The competition is a Continental Tour Gold competition, a premier event in world athletics.

“It will be fun to compete with him,” Olympic and world champion Neeraj Chopra said when asked about his assessment of young German Max Dehning in April.

Dehning was 19 in February when he became the youngest person to throw 90 meters in Halle. Dehning made headlines, and the history maker’s unexpected distancing also became a talking point. From a record of 79.13 meters, Dehning jumped to 90.20 m. The rise of a new German challenger just months before the Olympics was an exciting prospect.

On Tuesday evening, Neeraj and Dehning will be among eight men competing in the Paavo Nurmi Games in Turku, Finland. He has a 90-yard throw against his name, but Dehning hasn’t made it to the big leagues yet. Since his big throw, he gravitates between the 80-82 meter mark. A 12th place finish at the European Championships last week saw him drop to 76.16 metres. “Your only competition is yourself,” he posted on Instagram from Rome. LEARN MORE
