Neeraj Chopra said having a team with technical knowledge in sports science and biomechanics helps grow as an athlete and deliver world-class performances.

Panchkula: Olympic gold medalists Neeraj Chopra was the keynote speaker at the National Center for Sports Science and Research (NCSSR) session on “Olympic Gold in Athletics – A Billion Dreams Fulfilled and My Journey”, where he not only spoke about his Olympic journey, but also how the sport as a whole has developed in India, particularly in relation to sports science and biomechanics.

Neeraj, who is currently training in Finland for the upcoming World Championships in Athletics and Commonwealth Games (CWG), attended the online session and said that having a team with technical knowledge in sports science and biomechanics helps grow as an athlete and deliver world-class performance.

“I believe that to be able to give a world-class performance, things like sports science and biomechanics matter a lot with your regular training. In addition, having knowledge of sports science also helps you understand things technically. such as nutrition, diet, recovery and biomechanics. Only after understanding all of this and more can we progress as an athlete and as a competitor. This is my case here and at NSNIS Patiala, where I learn all this little by little and I can progress as a player, so having knowledge of sports science and biomechanics helps a lot.
