Neeraj Chopra minces no words, reveals areas where he needs to improve upon – CHECK DETAILS

Neeraj Chopra mentioned that he feels, he has done his best, in a long time.

When it comes to Indian javelin thrower Neeraj Chopra, the sky is the limit for him. There is no competition in the athletics world, that the 26-year-old has not won, in complete dominance in the last two years. But despite all this, Neeraj believes he has not yet achieved his best performance. Apparently, there is a lot to achieve still, and a lot to improve upon.

“I want to say this very clearly that my best is yet to come. I have not felt in a competition for a long time that I have done my best or done near my best,” Neeraj Chopra said. In fact, once again, as is the case, he touched upon the 90m topic.

“6 cm is left to be achieved. It was 89.94m at the Stockholm Diamond League (in June 2022). I was a bit behind the line at that time. Had I thrown my javelin by moving a bit ahead, it would have been 90m,” said Chopra at the event announcing his association with top supplements brand ‘Optimum Nutrition’.

Neeraj minced no words while talking about the area he want to improve upon. “My coach always says that it 60 per cent legs and 40 per cent upper body. So leg work is very important. I have to do a lot of improvement in leg work,” said the superstar javelin thrower.

“I do a lot of things good. My flexibility is quite good, but personally, I feel because of my arm speed, I am doing very well.

“Next year, I feel I will improve on my technique, and will work more on my strength and flexibility. If everything is all right, 100 percent fit and my groin is all right, I will do very well in the Paris Olympics.” He admitted that his technique while winning the Hangzhou Asian Games gold was not up to the mark.

“My technique was not going well during the Hangzhou Asian Games. My legwork was not that good, my blocking leg was bending. It was not that great but the important thing was that my arm was giving very good throw, my arm speed was very good.” He also said that “in some way or the other,” his preparations for the Paris Olympics will be different, though he did not elaborate much.
