Klaus Bartonietz has been with Chopra since the second part of 2019 when the youngster was undergoing rehabilitation following an arthroscopic surgery on the elbow of his throwing right hand
"Javelin throw is a very technical event and a lot depends on the day's form. Anything can happen. So, my next target is to breach the 90m (mark)," Chopra said after his historic feat
The Tokyo Paralympics slated to begin on August 24, will be Jhajharia's third Paralympics.
It is learnt that Chopra's pull-out was a precautionary measure to give his body enough time to rest after a lot of travel.
Competing for the first time in more than a year, Chopra hurled the spear to a distance of 88.07cm in his fifth attempt to obliterate his earlier national record of 88.06m
