When you think of Neeraj Chopra, the image that usually comes to mind is of the 24-year-old running to his target, throwing the spear, then spreading his arms out to celebrate before the stick even lands. However, he is a man of many talents and in a recent video he impressed fans with his strength and agility as he performed a pole climbing exercise. Chopra shared a video on Friday showing him climbing a diagonal pole and then climbing back down.
The feat could very well feature on an episode of shows like “American Ninja Warrior,” where contestants must complete difficult physical tasks to get through an obstacle course.

After winning the historic gold medal at the Tokyo Olympics last year, Neeraj Chopra returned to action with a bang this year. He twice broke the national record in javelin throw, before winning silver at the World Championships in Athletics in Eugene, Oregon.
However, an injury sustained during the World Cup final meant he was banned from the 2022 Commonwealth Games in Birmingham.
However, he plans to return to action soon.
Neeraj Chopra was on the list of participants for the Lausanne Diamond League Meeting on August 26. But he has yet to answer a call regarding his entry into the prestigious competition.
