Neeraj Chopra makes statement comeback; wins Lausanne Diamond League

Neeraj registered a best effort of 87.66m to finish the competition ahead of Germany's Julian Weber and Czech Republic's Jakub Vadlejch. It was also his second Diamond League win this season after having won the Doha edition in May earlier this year.

Chopra revealed that he was "a bit nervous" coming into the competition. "I was feeling a bit nervous coming back from an injury. It was a bit cold here tonight. I am still far from my best, but I feel it is getting better," he added.

"I am relieved it's coming together well for me. A win is a win and I will take that happily," he commented after winning the Lausanne meet for the second consecutive year.

Neeraj also hinted that he will be in action next at the 2023 World Athletics Championships in Budapest next month. "The next competition in Budapest will be a big one for me," he said.
