Javelin Throw: Arshad Nadeem to undergo knee surgery for fitness before Paris Olympics

Karachi. Pakistan’s top javelin thrower Arshad Nadeem left for England to undergo knee surgery. His aim is to regain fitness before the Paris Olympics. Nadeem, who won a gold medal in the Commonwealth Games (2022), had to withdraw from the Hangzhou Asian Games in China last year due to his knee problem.

Nadeem said, “I have now decided to undergo knee surgery as I have been facing a lot of trouble since last year. I took help of ‘rehabilitation’ but it did not work.” The 27-year-old player hopes that after the surgery, he will be fit in time for the Paris Olympic Games.

Nadeem had set a new Commonwealth Games record with a throw of 90.18 in Birmingham in 2022. After this, he has gained limelight and popularity like cricketers in the country. He is the first player to win a medal for Pakistan with a silver medal at the World Athletics Championships last year. He was left behind Neeraj Chopra in this competition. Arshad had finished fifth in the Tokyo Olympic Games with a best effort of 86.1.
