Neeraj figures in list of Diamond League Meeting competitors

New Delhi, 17 Aug: Olympic champion javelin thrower Neeraj Chopra, who pulled out of the recent Commonwealth Games due to a minor injury, figured in the list of competitors for the Lausanne Diamond League Meeting on August 26.
But he is yet to take a call on his participation in the prestigious competition.
The 24-year-old had missed the Birmingham CWG due to a “minor” groin strain he suffered while winning a historic silver in the World Championships in Eugene, USA last month. He was advised one-month rest.
“Neeraj is working on his rehabilitation and his team will take a call about the Lausanne Diamond League closer to the event,” said a source.
