Neeraj Chopra won the gold medal at the Kuortane Games in Finland

Olympic champion javelin thrower Neeraj Chopra on Saturday won the gold medal at the Kuortane Games in Finland, just his second competition since winning the top prize at the Tokyo Games last year.

Chopra won after registering a throw of 86.69m on his first attempt, which would remain his only legal one, at the rain-washed track. The Indian finished ahead of Trinidad and Tobago’s Keshorn Walcott and world champion Anderson Peters of Grenada.
