On the final day of the World Athletics Championships 2023, an overwhelming eight Indian athletes will be in action in the finals at the National Athletics Centre in Budapest on Sunday.

While Olympic gold medallist Neeraj Chopra made the final on an expected line with an 88.77m effort in javelin throw, he will be accompanied by DP Manu and Kishore Jena in the men's event - boasting good health of the sport in India.

The throw was also enough for Neeraj to secure a berth in the Paris Olympics, where he will defend his gold medal.

Manu, who was slotted in the Group A qualifying round along with Neeraj, had come up with a best attempt of 81.31m.

Jena, who was in Group B of the qualifying round, would throw 80.55m. Although neither Jena nor Manu met the automatic qualification standard of 83m, they both made it to the final based on their rankings - Jena finished ninth and Manu entered the final as the sixth-placed thrower.
