Neeraj Chopra to miss Commonwealth Games due to injury

| @indiablooms | 26 Jul 2022, 01:08 pm

Mumbai: Indian Olympic champion Neeraj Chopra will  miss the upcoming Commonwealth Games due to injury.

The Indian Olympic Association tweeted: "Our Olympic Champ @Neeraj_chopra1 will not be defending his title at @birminghamcg22 due to concerns regarding his fitness. We wish him a speedy recovery & are supporting him in these challenging times.#EkIndiaTeamIndia #WeareTeamIndia."

The event is scheduled to be held in Birmingham this year.

Reigning Olympic champion javelin thrower Neeraj Chopra recently scripted history as he clinched the silver medal with an 88.13m throw at the World Athletics Championships here on Saturday (Sunday morning in India).

After clinching the silver, Chopra became the first man and the second Indian to win a medal at the world championships since Anju Bobby Gerage won bronze in the women's triple jump event in 2003 in Paris.
