India's javelin champion Neeraj Chopra looks to break new ground in Oregon, United States of America.
Neeraj Chopra needed just one throw to reach the final with a first attempt of 88.39 meters in the men's javelin qualification event on Friday.
Olympic silver medallist Jakub Vadlejch of Czech Republic too joined him in the list with his first-attempt throw of 85.23m.
The qualification mark to make it to the final was 83.50. The Olympic champion has his eyes on his maiden senior World Championships medal.
The 24-year-old became the first Indian to claim an individual Olympic gold in athletics last year in Tokyo with an effort of 87.58m.
Chopra recently clinched a silver medal at the prestigious Diamond League meet in Stockholm.
He threw a personal best of 89.30m at last month's Paavo Nurmi Games before improving it to 89.94m at the Diamond League.
A win in Oregon means Chopra will become the first men's javelin thrower to win a world title with Olympic success since Norway's Andreas Thorkildsen in 2008-09.
Long jumper Anju Bobby George remains the only Indian to claim a worlds medal with a bronze in 2003.
