Tokyo Olympics champion Neeraj Chopra wasn’t competing at the season-opening  Doha Diamond League but the Indian javelin ace must have followed Friday’s results keenly.

Reigning world champion Anderson Peters of Grenada clinched the men’s javelin throw gold medal in Doha with a massive throw of 93.07m — becoming the latest member of the very exclusive 90m club, one Neeraj Chopra isn’t a part of yet. Peters’ previous personal best was 87.31m.

Tokyo 2020 silver medallist Jakub Vadlejch of the Czech Republic also bettered his personal best to win silver with a massive 90.88m throw.

Germany’s Julian Weber won bronze with an 86.09m throw.
