New Delhi, Aug 2 (PTI) In a rare instance in Indian athletics, four men’s javelin throwers from the country have qualified for the World Championships in Budapest, Hungary, later this month, but injury to one member of the quartet meant that all of them will not take part in the big-ticket event.

Olympic champion Neeraj Chopra has already qualified for the August 19-27 showpiece as wild card by virtue of being the Diamond League champion and Kishore Jena also made the cut in the world ranking quota.

Rohit Yadav and DP Manu also made it to the 36 javelin throwers’ list to compete in the world championships. But Rohit had recently undergone a surgery on his throwing elbow and he will miss the World Championships.
