Pakistan’s Arshad Nadeem Qualifies for Final Javelin Throw Competition in Olympics

KARACHI: It was a morning Pakistan Athletics will remember for long as Pakistan’s Arshad Nadeem created history on Wednesday when he qualified for the final of javelin throw competition in the Tokyo Olympics.

Arahad Nadeem is the first-ever Pakistani athlete to qualify for the final of any track and field event in the Olympics.

He was placed in group B for the contest in which the athlete had to throw a minimum of 83.5m to directly qualify for the final. Only six athletes could do so, and Arshad was one of them while the rest of the six athletes advanced to the finals on basis of their respective farthest throw.
