Lahore: Test cricketer Ahmad Shahzad awarded legendary athlete Arshad Nadeem a check for one million rupees in appreciation of his silver medal at the World Athletics Championship in Budapest, Hungary on Sunday.
Arshad Nadeem received congratulations from Ahmad Shahzad for earning the award and elevating Pakistan.
“Arshad Nadeem has created a new history by winning this medal,” said Ahmad Shahzad. “He will also win a medal for Pakistan in the Asian Games as well as in the Paris Olympics.”
Arshad Nadeem made history last month as he clinched a silver medal, at the World Athletics Championship. This was Pakistan’s first-ever medal in the tournament’s history.
Arshad Nadeem secured the silver with his best throw in his third attempt which went at a distance of 87.82 meters.
Arshad started things slowly with a 74.80m throw in his first attempt, however, he made a sounding comeback with an 82.81m throw in his second attempt.

His aforementioned third throw, proved to be his best in the season, going as far as 87.82 meters, while his fourth attempt could only go at 87.12m.
His fifth and sixth attempts failed to breach Neeraj Chopra’s 88.17-meter mark, hence settling for a silver.
Prior to that, Arshad Nadeem secured his place for the final of the World Athletics Championship in Budapest, as well as, the Paris Olympics in 2024 in the qualifying round of the World Athletics Championship.
Arshad Nadeem started off the qualifying round of the javelin throw event with a 70.63m throw in his first attempt, while in his second attempt, he threw his javelin at a distance of 81.53 meters.
The automatic qualifying mark for the World Athletics Championship final was 83 meters, while the standard for the Olympic Games in Paris was 85.50 meters.
Arshad Nadeem broke both records on his third try with an incredible 86.79-meter throw, thus entering both competitions.
Arshad Nadeem was disqualified from the Asian Athletics Championship owing to a left knee injury, but the medical board earlier this month cleared him to compete in the World Athletics Championship.
