Olympian javelin thrower Arshad Nadeem has recuperated from a recent leg injury and is set to compete in the upcoming Diamond League on July 7 in Paris.

Nadeem is undergoing training under the supervision of his coach, Salman Iqbal Butt, after sustaining an injury due to the extreme heat in Lahore.

On Tuesday, June 18, the Athletics Federation of Pakistan (AFP) announced that Nadeem would not be participating in the events in Finland. However, Nadeem has reported significant improvement in his condition.

The gold medalist of the 2022 Commonwealth Games is currently preparing for the major Olympic event in Paris. As part of his training regimen, he will be competing in the Diamond League in Paris.

Nadeem believes this competition will offer valuable experience ahead of the Olympics. He opted out of the recent events in Finland to avoid aggravating his injury.

“The extreme weather conditions led to excessive sweating that caused severe cramps and leg pain. I’m practising really hard for the Olympics, competing in the Diamond League as part of my training would be really helpful for the mega event. I did not risk my injury by participating in the events held in Finland,” Nadeem reported.

Coach Butt explained that the excessive sweating had adversely affected Nadeem’s muscles but noted that the athlete is making good progress in his recovery.

“Sweating due to weather conditions negatively impacted Nadeem’s muscles. Despite the setback, he’s progressing well through the rehabilitation phase. He’s training hard and will recover soon. Diamond League is after two weeks, hopefully Nadeem will be in full rhythm by them,” Butt said.
