Arshad Nadeem finishes fifth at the World Athletics Championships
Arshad Nadeem came in fifth place in the men’s javelin throw final at the World Athletics Championships in Oregon, United States. All year, he’d made the finest throw of his career. During the group B qualifying round on Friday, the athlete threw 81.71 metres, which earned him ninth position overall. Nadeem managed an impressive javelin throw of 86.16 metres in the finals despite his shaky fitness.
His best toss of the season, in my opinion. India’s Neeraj Chopra, with a throw of 88.13 metres, took home the silver medal. Arshad’s first major international competition since the Tokyo Olympics was the World Athletics Championships. For the first time ever, a Pakistani athlete has qualified for the World Championships in Athletics.
When it comes to tournament activity, Neeraj had a somewhat quiet month in June, appearing in just three tournaments. Last year, the 25-year-old Pakistani javelin thrower who made it to the final of the Tokyo Olympics became famous. For the first time in Olympic history, a Pakistani athlete competed in a track and field final.
