Now Czech Republic's Jakub Vadlejch goes big. 88.09 metres in round 3. A big improvement on his 87.23 in the previous round. Chopra will need a personal best to win gold, silver too will need a big effort from him

#NeerajChopra | #WorldAthleticsChamps
Anderson Peters' 90.46 metres is still the distance Neeraj Chopra needs to beat to win gold. Peters has thrown distances of 90.21, 90.46, 87.21 and 88.12 today.

#NeerajChopra | #WorldAthleticsChampionships
Chopra's fifth attempt is a foul. He is still in second place behind Anderson Peters. A silver at the World Championships is a major feat for an Indian. Chopra will become the 2nd only after long jumper Anju Bobby George to medal at senior Worlds.

#NeerajChopra |
A foul attempt for Neeraj on the fifth throw, but the 88.13m in the previous attempt should be enough to keep him in medal positions. Fingers crossed. The next attempt, sixth, will be the last for all throwers in this men's javelin final.

#NeerajChopra | #WorldAthleticsChamps
HISTORY! Silver medal for Neeraj Chopra in men's javelin final. He becomes only the 2nd Indian after Anju Bobby George to win a medal at the World Championships.

After his Olympic gold medal in Tokyo, this is Neeraj Chopra's biggest career achievement at the senior level. Long-jumper Anju Bobby George will finally have company after a wait of 19 years.
