Arshad Nadeem has the whole nation behind him as he qualifies for the Javelin Throw final at the Tokyo Olympics.
This makes him the first Pakistani to qualify for the final of any track and field event at the Olympics. Arshad Nadeem’s throw was third-best of the day behind India’s Neeraj Chopra (86.65m) and world leader Germany’s Johannes Vetter (85.64m).
Nadeem was seen thanking the Pakistanis for their prayers as well as his coach who prepared him for this feat. He also urged the fans back at home to continue praying for him so that he can achieve big in the finals.
