Star With a stunning performance in Hungary, Pakistani javelin thrower Arshad Nadeem cemented his status as a dominant force in athletics.

Nadeem qualified for the 2024 Paris Olympics with a throw of 86.79 meters, which earned him a spot in the World Athletics Championship finals.

Arshad Nadeem got off to a shaky start with a throw of 70.63 meters, but he quickly refocused and delivered an impressive 81.53 meters on his second try.

He easily outperformed the 83-meter automatic qualifying mark to secure a spot among the top 12 contenders.

It is important to note that on Sunday, August 27, in Hungary, the eagerly anticipated javelin throw finals will take place.

Arshad Nadeem expressed last week his resolve to bring home a gold medal for his nation in the major competition.

“I am in good health, and I will work hard to achieve the desired result, insha’Allah. InshaAllah, I can win a gold medal if I manage to throw my personal best,” he said.

Nadeem, who won a gold medal at the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games (CWG), is back in competition after missing a year due to a serious injury.
