Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif bestowed honors upon Arshad Nadeem for his outstanding contributions and services to Pakistan, announcing a cash prize of 2.5 million to commend his achievements.

The meeting, attended by Minister for Information and Broadcasting Attaullah Tarar, Minister of State for IT and Telecom Shaza Fatima Khawaja, MNA Romeena Khurshid Alam, and Punjab Assembly member Rana Mashhood Ahmed Khan, celebrated Nadeem’s historic silver medal win at the World Athletics Championship, marking him as the first Pakistani to achieve such a feat.

Despite facing resource constraints, Nadeem’s stellar performance secured him 5th place in the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo. His gold medal at the Commonwealth Games, with a record throw of 90.18 meters, surpassed his Indian rival Neeraj Chopra’s accomplishments.

Having initiated his career in Javelin throw in 2012, Nadeem’s journey exemplifies perseverance and dedication. Discussions with PM Shahbaz Sharif centered on bolstering sports, particularly in rural areas, and nurturing young talent to enhance Pakistan’s performance at international events like the Olympics.

With Nadeem set to compete in the Javelin category at the Paris Olympics in July, efforts to revitalize sports infrastructure and programs were underscored, aiming to uplift Pakistan’s sporting prowess.
