Pakistani javelin sensation Arshad Nadeem is set to captivate the audience with his performance at the World Athletics Championships 2023, hosted in Budapest, Hungary.

Arshad Nadeem solidified his place in the ongoing World Athletics Championship in Budapest, Hungary, securing the final spot on Friday. An additional accomplishment follows him, as he has already qualified for the Paris Olympics scheduled for 2024.

Nadeem’s most remarkable throw soared to an impressive 86.79 meters. Eclipsing the Olympic benchmark of 85.50 meters, Nadeem exhibited his mettle with distinction.

Embarking on a slightly rocky start with a 70.63-meter opening attempt, Nadeem resurged admirably with an 81.53-meter throw in his second try. The yardstick for automatic qualification to the final rested at 83 meters or securing a spot within the top 12 competitors.

The culmination of the javelin throw event is set for Sunday, August 27. It promises an intense showdown as Nadeem strives for further acclaim.

Nadeem got limelight with his fifth-place finish at the Tokyo Olympics, an achievement that utterly transformed his life. The Olympic feat not only earned him recognition and affluence but also molded his character.

He replicated his fifth-place achievement at the US World Championship last year. His exceptional performance continued with a record-breaking throw of 90.18 meters at the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham, solidifying his position as a leading athlete in the quadrennial event.

Enduring elbow and left knee surgeries in London, Nadeem dedicated himself to recovery and marked his return to competitive sports in May during the 34th National Games in Quetta. While his fitness levels remained a concern, he secured gold for his department, WAPDA. Unfortunately, an unfortunate right knee injury led him to miss the recent Asian Championship in Bangkok.

Where to Tune In

The highly anticipated event will take place at 11:00 p.m. Viewers can catch the action on PTV Sports and various other sports channels. The interim government of Punjab has also decided to showcase the final of the World Athletics Championship on large screens.
