Arshad Nadeem Friday clinched a gold medal for Pakistan at the 2022 Islamic Solidarity Games in Konya, Turkey in a record-breaking fashion again— the second one for the athlete in less than a week.
In his first attempt, Nadeem was able to throw the javelin at a distance of 79.40 metres, followed by 88.55 metres, 75.50 metres, 82.40 metres, and 83.33 metres.
With his victory, he also broke the five-year-old record set by Qatar’s Ahmed Bader Magour in 2017 with a throw of 83.45m in Baku, Azerbaijan.
Last week, the athlete made the nation proud as he bagged a gold medal during the javelin throw competition at the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham. In his fifth and final attempt, the Olympian set a new CWG record of a 90.18m throw and became the first Pakistani to hold the record.
At least 4,000 athletes from 56 Muslim countries are competing in 24 different games while vying for a total of 355 medals.
