Neeraj Chopra, the Indian Javelin ace who started his 2023 season with a victory at the Doha Diamond League in May, has opted out of the FBK Games in the Netherlands scheduled for June. In a social media update, Chopra revealed that he made the decision to withdraw from the event due to a muscle strain sustained during training.

Neeraj Chopra, the Indian sensation, clinched the silver medal in the previous edition of the Paavo Nurmi Games with a remarkable throw of 89.30m, securing the second position behind Finland’s Oliver Helander. It is noteworthy that Chopra’s performance in that competition set a personal best for him at the time. However, he surpassed his own record during the 2022 World Cup, delivering an exceptional throw of 89.94m, which currently holds the status of being the national record.
