Waiter challenges Neerja
Waiter and Neeraj are fierce rivals on the field but both are good friends off the field. The two first met in 2018 in Effenberg, Germany, where they were training at the same centre. “Neeraj has covered a good distance twice this year,” said the waiter at the World Athletics Conference. If he is fit and healthy, he can throw spears long distances. However in Tokyo he will have to face my challenge. I’ll try to throw over 90 meters in Tokyo. However, the waiters in Tokyo did not perform as expected.
