Chopra became just the second Indian to win a medal at the World Championships after long jumper Anju Bobby George. While Anderson Peters of Grenada won the gold medal with a best throw of 90.54m, Chopra’s best attempt was an 88.13m throw that saw him edge Czech Republic’s Jakub Vadlejch for the silver medal.
