Neeraj Chopra will return from his Oregon‘s World Championships campaign with two unfinished business – the title glory and the elusive 90m mark. While the 90m effort is within striking distance, it’s the Worlds crown for which he now has to wait until August 2023 when it will happen in Hungary‘s Budapest.
Still, Neeraj isn’t complaining. He is happy with his show at Eugene but determined to change the colour of the medal next time around.

Excerpts from his virtual interaction:
A gold eluded you…
The hunger for gold will continue in me. But I have to believe we cannot get gold each time. I will do what is in my control…focus and concentrate on my training. While the conditions weren’t good and the wind speed was too high, I was confident I would perform well. I am satisfied with the result. I will look to win the gold in Diamond Leagues and, of course, the World Championships.

Were you under pressure after your first three attempts?
I didn’t feel pressured by the fact that I am an Olympic champion. I believed in myself even after the third throw. I made a comeback and won silver, it felt good.

You had strapping on your thigh…Any injury concern heading to the CWG?
I thought even the fourth throw could have gone farther. After that, I felt something on my thigh and could not do my best in the next two. I will know the status tomorrow morning because my body is still warm after the event. I hope there should not be any injury issues for the CWG.

Arshad Nadeem of Pakistan (who finished fifth) performed fairly well…Did two of you speak after the final?
I spoke to him after the event and told him that he performed really well. He said ‘I had a problem with my elbow’. He was not doing well in the beginning, so when we finished, I told him he did a fine job and made a good comeback.
