Arshad Nadeem is determined to win a Commonwealth medal
Arshad Nadeem is the Pakistan’s top javelin thrower he will be competing in the men’s javelin throw final at the rebuilt Alexander Stadium on Sunday, hoping to win his first Commonwealth Games gold (today).
H has a great opportunity to place on the podium in Birmingham since Tokyo Olympics gold medalist and World Championship silver medalist Neeraj Chopra of India opted to skip the quadrennial tournament owing to groyne ailment.
Arshad finished fifth at the recent World Championships in the United States, after finishing fifth in the Tokyo Olympics last year. This was also his third personal best throw, with his previous bests being 86.38m in Iran and 86.29m at the 2019 Nepal South Asian Games.
Anderson Peters, the two-time world champion, has arrived in Birmingham and is in excellent condition. He just defended his world championship in the United States with a monster throw of 90.54 metres.
Keshorn Walcott of Trinidad and Tobago has also confirmed his participation, and it will be interesting to watch how he fares. However, he fell behind in the World Championship in the United States. He failed to qualify for the finals with a throw of 78.87m. Despite this, he may be deceptive due to his extensive expertise. Kishorn has a bronze medal from the 2016 Rio Olympics and a silver medal from the 2014 Glasgow Commonwealth Games to his name.
It’ll be fascinating to watch how the group performs in Birmingham. Arshad is optimistic that he would do admirably in the quadrennial tournament.
“Yes, InshaAllah, I will try my best,” Arshad said to ‘The News’ in this city.
“I’m in great shape. Yes, I have an elbow injury and am messing around with it. It bothered me in the United States since I was in discomfort throughout the World Championship, but I’m handling it well.
He played without a coach in the United States as well, and he will do it again here. Terseus Liebenberg, Arshad’s South African instructor who had coached him in Johannesburg, was unable to go to the United States owing to health issues.
“I don’t have a coach,” Arshad explained.
