Dehning’s meteoric rise to prominence has captured the attention of fans and athletes alike. At just 19 years old, he has already secured a coveted spot in the exclusive 90m club, a milestone that Chopra has yet to attain. The prospect of facing off against Dehning has sparked excitement within Chopra and the javelin throw community.

In a recent interaction with journalists, Chopra expressed his anticipation for the upcoming competitions and the opportunity to compete against Dehning for the first time. Despite not having crossed paths on the field yet, Chopra is eager to test his skills against the emerging talent.

As Chopra gears up to tackle the challenges of the upcoming season, the emergence of Dehning adds an intriguing new dimension to the javelin throw landscape, promising exciting competitions and fierce rivalries on the track.
