Watch: Dinesh Karthik’s Javelin Throw with Neeraj Chopra Creates Buzz Online

Dinesh Karthik’s Javelin Throw with Neeraj Chopra: Veteran Indian keeper-batter Dinesh Karthik recently tried his hand at the javelin throw, an exciting endeavor that showcased his versatility beyond cricket. The cricketer was seen performing a throw under the watchful eyes of India’s celebrated track and field athlete, Neeraj Chopra. Chopra, who clinched the gold medal at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games with an impressive 87.58m javelin throw, guided Karthik through the process.

Karthik’s javelin throw attempt was part of his hosting duties on Jio Cinema’s popular sports show, ‘Get Set Gold.’ In one of the episodes, Neeraj Chopra was featured as a special guest, and the two sportsmen had a detailed discussion about the intricacies of the javelin throw. Chopra’s insights provided a fascinating glimpse into the discipline and skill required for this demanding sport.

Towards the end of the episode, Chopra playfully challenged the former Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) star to throw the javelin at least 25 meters. Karthik, displaying his competitive spirit, accepted the challenge with enthusiasm. However, his first attempt fell short of the 25-meter mark, underscoring the difficulty of the task.

Determined to succeed, Karthik made a second attempt. This time, he managed to throw the javelin beyond the 25-meter mark, but it was unfortunately declared a foul as his foot touched the scratch line. Despite this setback, the effort highlighted Karthik’s dedication and willingness to step out of his comfort zone.

Dinesh Karthik recently announced his retirement from the Indian Premier League (IPL) following RCB’s four-wicket defeat to Rajasthan Royals (RR) in the Eliminator. His foray into the world of javelin throw, albeit brief, added an interesting chapter to his diverse career in sports.
