Despite carrying a chronic elbow injury, Pakistan’s top javelin thrower Arshad Nadeem vowed to com-pete in all major international competitions including World Championships, Commonwealth Games and the Islamic Games during 2022.

“Injuries are part of every athlete’s life; they come and go but I am ready to represent Pakistan at this year’s World Championships, Commonwealth Games and the Islamic Games,” Arshad said and regretted that the Asian Games, which were sched-uled to be held in Hangzhou, China from Sept 10-25, had been postponed indefinitely due to the resurgence of Covid-19 in the East Asian country. —Agencies
