    Neeraj Chopra Diamond League 2023 Final Live Updates: Neeraj Chopra will take the field at the iconic Hayward Field at the University of Oregon late on Saturday night as he competes in the Eugene Diamond League Final. Hayward Field is where Chopra won a historic silver medal in the 2022 World Athletics Championships last year.

    Chopra’s route to the final has seen him finish on top in two individual Diamond League meetings — in Doha on May 5 and Lausanne on June 30 — and second at the Zurich meet on August 31 (with Vadlejch topping). He also claimed an unprecedented gold medal at the World Athletics Championships in Budapest, bettering his silver medal from last year.

    So far this season, the reigning Olympic and world champion has thrown a season’s best of 88.77m while his personal best is 89.94m, agonizing close to the hallowed 90m mark. Long jumper Murali Sreeshankar and 3000m steeplechaser Avinash Sable had also qualified for the DL finals in their respective events but decided to pull out to focus on the upcoming Hangzhou Asian Games.

    Usually, reams of praise on top athletes get written at the fag-end of their careers, but Neeraj Chopra is an exception. At 25 he has virtually won every global title possible – with the most recent being India’s first World Championship gold. But despite achieving what most athletes dream of in such a short time, Neeraj seems as hungry as ever. At the post-Worlds press conference, he summed up his mindset when he said, “Throwers don’t have a finishing line.”

    “So I can push myself, it is motivation to see how many medals one can win. Winning medals does not mean we have done everything. There are so many athletes who have won multiple medals. So I will push myself much more and work harder,” he added. (Read more from our reporter Andrew Amsan)
