Olympic champion javelin thrower Neeraj Chopra and Commonwealth Games triple jump gold medallist Eldhose Paul have decided to give National Games 2022 a miss.
Neeraj Chopra figured in the list of competitors for the Lausanne Diamond League, but he is yet to take a call on his participation.
India won 61 medals in 12 sports at the Commonwealth Games 2022. India finished fourth in the medal tally. Here's the list complete list of winners.
Olympic champion javelin thrower Neeraj Chopra became the first Indian to win gold in a Diamond League meet. He won the Lausanne leg on Friday with a best effort of 89.08m.
About 25 percent of India's 66 medals came from the shooting range in the previous edition and not many believed that India will be able to touch even 50.
Even with Neeraj Chopra out of action, India made an impression at the Commonwealth Games, thanks to the likes of Avinash Sable, Nikhat Zareen and Eldhose Paul.
A top-three finish in Lausanne will ensure Neeraj Chopra a berth in the Diamond League Finals in Zurich on September 7 and 8.
At Birmingham Commonwealth Games, Avinash Sable became the first non-Kenyan to win a medal since 1994.
India have so far won 40 medals (13 gold, 11 silver and 16 bronze) and remained fifth in the Commonwealth Games 2022 medal tally. Catch day 9 highlights here.
