Tokyo Olympic gold medalist Neeraj Chopra has set the new  national record.

He threw the javelin 89.30  meters away to achieve this  extraordinary feat.

Neeraj set this national record at the Paavo Nurmi Games in Finland.

However, he had to settle for a  silver medal at this event.

Finland's Oliver Helander won the gold medal at the event with a  throw of 89.83 m.

This was Neeraj's first competition after winning the gold medal in the Tokyo Olympics last year.

Neeraj bettered his own national record of 88.07 Metre which he set in Patiala in March last year.

Neeraj's 89.30m effort will take him to 5th spot in the world season  leaders' list.

Neeraj will next take part in the Kuortane Games in Finland on 18 June.

He will also feature in the Stockholm leg of the Diamond League on June 30 & we hope he touches the 90m mark in the upcoming events.
