Pakistan javelin-thrower sharpens hopes of rare Olympic medal

LAHORE: Arshad Nadeem once dreamed of becoming a star cricketer, but after switching to athletics he has the opportunity to grab Pakistan’s first individual Olympic medal in more than 30 years.

“Right now there is a chance for me,” Nadeem told AFP as he prepared for next month’s Covid-delayed Tokyo Games.

“If I throw my best then, God willing, I will win a medal.”

Since its first Olympics in London in 1948, Pakistan have won three gold, three silver and two bronze medals in field hockey.
