Arshad Nadeem Javelin Finals

Pakistani cricket stars, celebrities and political leaders were all praises for Arshad Nadeem on Wednesday after he qualified for the final of the men’s javelin at the Tokyo Olympics with a throw of 85.16 metres.

Arshad Nadeem is the first-ever Pakistani athlete to pass for the final of any field event in the Olympics.

He was placed in group B for the competition in which the athlete had to throw a minimum of 83.5m to directly qualify for the final.

In his first attempt, the 24-year-old athlete could reach the 78.5m mark but in the second attempt, Arshad broke records with a throw of 85.16m that also placed him on top of group B.

This was overall the third-best throw in the contest after India’s Neeraj Chopra (86.65m) and Germany’s Johannes Vetter (85.64m).

However, the cricketers took to their social media to hail the finalist and extended messages to support him.

“A wonderful performance by our javelin hero @ArshadJavelin. Qualifying for the final of #Tokyo2020 and making us all proud. All the best Arshad,” Wahab Riaz tweeted.

“Our hero from Mian Channu @ArshadJavelin. Mubarak on reaching the final achievement, insha’Allah you’ll make Pakistan proud! Lots of Duas,” wrote Hassan Ali.

Pakistani wicketkeeper Kamran Akmal also praised Nadeem’s impressive throw at the Olympics.

Moreover, Imad Wasim said, “We’re super proud of you! Now all the best for the final.”

“What a wonderful achievement tweeted Ahmad Shahzad.

Arshad Nadeem made his international comeback after the 2019 South Asian Games performance in April at the Mashhad Imam Reza Athletics Tournament in Iran and had created a national record, throwing a distance of 86.38m.

Earlier, Nadeem told that he doesn’t regret leaving the country’s most popular sport for something like javelin throw.
