Arshad Nadeem had arm pain before Olympics; says medic

Pakistan’s rising star athlete Arshad Nadeem displayed stellar performance at the Tokyo Olympics 2020, which has won everyone’s hearts.

Before heading for the Games, Arshad had decided not to take part in the event due to his arm pain, revealed by Dr. Asad Abbas.

While talking to the media, Dr. Asad said that Arshad had been facing difficulties throwing javelin due to arm pain. Because of this, he decided to skip the Games.

After his physiotherapy treatment, he got rid of the pain, the doctor said. Further adding that he had changed his mind after becoming fit for competition.

He was still worried about the pain during the event. Despite this, he showed outstanding performance after he was assured that pain would not reemerge.

Dr. Asad Abbas, in response to a question, claimed that the Indian javelin thrower’s coach was “nervous during the competition”  considering Nadeem’s arm pain but was of the view that the star performer was capable of a throw measuring more than 90 meters.

Arshad asked the gov. to facilitate him

Earlier this month, the star athlete had demanded of the government provide him necessary training facilities so he could perform even better at the next Olympics scheduled in 2024.

On his return to the country from Tokyo, he was warmly welcomed by the Punjab Minister for Youth and Sports Rai Taimoor Khan Bhatti, president of the Athletics Federation Pakistan, coaches and athletes had received him at the airport.
