Javelin Throw Final Live: While there are others including Jakub Vadlejcz, Julian Weber and Oliver Hellander, the throwers to beat Anderson and Neeraj.
There are multiple reasons why this final is being dubbed as Neeraj Chopra vs Anderson Peters. Both the bowlers come into the competition on the back of some amazing performances.
Anderson and Neeraj finished first and second respectively in the last event in the Diamond League. While the former threw the javelin a distance of 90.31 to win the gold, the latter returned 89.94 to take the silver. The competition between the two has been quite close, and one can expect a similar show in Oregon in the next 48 hours.
How are the two doing this season?
Neeraj competed in just three events this year, and won one gold and two silvers. But what impressed was his throw. He continued to improve and came very close to breaching the 90m mark.
Anderson is more brilliant. He has competed in 12 throw events. Except for third place twice in one event and ninth place in one, he topped the charts in all other competitions.
What about their throw distance in 2022?
Neeraj had three throws and it fell at 89.30, 86.69 and 89.94 metres. The latter is his personal best and is also a national record. As for Anderson, he has registered three 90m throws this season. In fact his 93.07 in May is the fifth best throw of all time.

But Neeraj fared well in the other two events. In Turku in June, Neeraj finished second with a throw of 89.30 and Anderson was third with a throw of 86.60. Immediately in the next event at Koorton, Neeraj did better. His throw was 86.69 to Anderson’s 84.75.
