Arshad Nadeem, the prominent javelin thrower from Pakistan, clinched the silver medal at the World Athletics Championship in Budapest, Hungary, on Sunday. In his third attempt, Nadeem launched the javelin to an impressive distance of 87.82m, securing his position on the podium.
The gold medal was earned by India’s Neeraj Chopra, who achieved a top throw of 88.17m, while Jakub Vadlejch of the Czech Republic came third with an 86.67m throw.
