Diamond League: Neeraj Chopra rewrites national record again

Neeraj Chopra broke the national record for the second time in a month.

He executed an opening throw of 89.94 metres at the Stockholm Diamond League.

The Olympic Champion finished second to world champion Anderson Peters.

It was the first time when Neeraj finished in the top three in a Diamond League event. 

"I thought I could throw 90m today, but slow improvement is good!" Neeraj said.

Neeraj is in good form with the javelin event at the World Championships in Oregon just three weeks away.
