India's star Javelin thrower Neeraj Chopra on Friday qualified for Paris Olympics 2024 as he registered a monstrous throw in the World Athletics Championships 2023. Chopra registered a season-best throw in Group A of the qualification round at the Worlds in Budapest, Hungary. The reigning Olympic Gold medalist Chopra sent his spear to a huge 88.77m mark on his first attempt itself to breach the qualifying mark of 85.50 for the Paris Games. Meanwhile, he has also booked his place for the World Athletics

Championships finals.

Chopra bagged a Silver medal at the Worlds last year. He has endured a fine 2023 so far but was troubled with a muscle strain that saw him miss out on a month's action. He looked to come into his peak at the Worlds and the 25-year-old did it in style. Chopra took no time to come at the best in the qualification round. He broke his season throw mark of 88.67m and added another 10 centimetres to it in Budapest. He has also confirmed his place in the finals of the Championships.
