Arshad Nadeem is prepared to compete in the world athletics championship

Javelin thrower Arshad Nadeem had some fitness concerns, but according to Pakistan Athletics Federation Secretary Mohammad Zafar, he is back in full swing and will be prepared to compete at the World Athletics Championship.

“Arshad is now preoccupied with World Athletics Championship preparations,” the Secretary of the Athletics Federation said in a statement to the media. Despite minor arm problems, he will be prepared to partake in the race.

The 18th World Athletics Championships, which are slated to take place in Oregon from July 15–24, 2022, will feature only Arshad as a representative for Pakistan.

The top javelin thrower was flown to South Africa earlier this year to practise at Northwest University Potchefstroom under the direction of South African coach Terseus Liebenberg for the future major competitions.

Mohammad Zafar revealed the itinerary, saying, “He [Arshad] would be flying from America to the UK for the Commonwealth Games. In the World Athletics Championship, he is the lone representative of Pakistan.

The forthcoming 2022 Commonwealth Games, which will take place in Birmingham, England from July 28 to August 8, will feature Arshad Nadeem and other national competitors.

The national team, which will represent Pakistan in 13 games at the Commonwealth Games, was put together by the Pakistan Olympic Association earlier this month and consists of 68 men, 34 women, and 17 officials.

General (Retd) Akram Sahi, the president of the Pakistan Athletics Federation, had announced that they had recruited a foreign sports physician and physiotherapist for Arshad’s arm surgery in London following the two major competitions.
