The 26-year-old sensation faced initial struggles in the competition, trailing in second place after three rounds. However, he surged ahead in the fourth round with a remarkable throw of 82.27m. Opting out of the final round, he secured victory as his closest competitor, DP Manu, settled for silver after completing his final attempt.

Chopra’s last appearance in a domestic event was on March 17, 2021, where he clinched gold with a throw of 87.80m. Since then, he has achieved remarkable milestones including a historic gold at the Tokyo Olympics, clinching the Diamond League championship in 2022, winning the world championship in 2023, and successfully defending his Asian Games title in China. Additionally, he secured victories in three individual legs of the Diamond League and earned a silver medal in the 2022 World Championships.

He has not yet reached the 90-meter mark, though his personal best and national record stand at 89.94 meters.
