Watch: Neeraj Chopra shares video of himself training




Olympic gold medalist Neeraj Chopra is known for his fitness regimen and in one example of that, the javelin thrower shared a video of himself working out.

In a clip shared on Twitter, titled “Rukna nahi hain”, Chopra was seen climbing two ropes and then descending in an astonishing feat of wrist strength.

Earlier this month, during an interaction with Indian Express, Chopra spoke about his training experience in different countries. “My first training stint outside India was in Spala, Poland in 2016. Previously it was an occasional training camp abroad and I spent most of the time in India. This time, I started from Chula Vista in the United States, then I went to Gloria, then to different countries in Europe. We plan our training trip according to the competition dates. For the world championships, we reached Chula Vista two weeks before the event to practice and get used to the time zone and weather,” he said.

In September, Chopra became the first Indian to win the Diamond League title. He had also won a silver medal at the world championships in July. He broke the national record not once but twice. 86.69 meters in difficult weather is the shortest distance he has covered to win an event this year. He had three throws for 89 yards this year.

In his only other Diamond League in Stockholm, he had improved the national record from 89.30 meters to 89.94 meters.

A look at his medal-winning throws since returning from a long hiatus after the Olympics is testament to Chopra’s unerring technique, resilience and mental toughness.
