Allaying fears of an injury after suffering a fall during the Kuortane Games in Finland, Olympics champion javelin thrower Neeraj Chopra said he is looking forward to starting his Diamond League season in Stockholm on June 30. The 24-year-old Chopra slipped after his third attempt yesterday. The run-up area was wet and slippery due to rain. Chopra lost his balance after releasing the spear and had a nasty fall with his left shoulder hitting the floor.

Chopra won the competition with his opening throw of 86.69 metres. “Tough conditions with the weather, but happy to get my first win of the season,” Chopra wrote in an Instagram post. “I am feeling good and looking forward to starting my Diamond League season.”
