In the world of sports these days, the discussions between India and Pakistan are in full swing. This war was witnessed in the national game recently during the Hockey Asian Champions Trophy. Then in cricket, this year this war is going to be very interesting. Because first there is the Asia Cup and then the ODI World Cup. But now after these field games, there is going to be a war between India and Pakistan in track and field as well. Yes, that time has come in the world of athletics too when the bravehearts of India and Pakistan are face to face. We are talking about the ongoing World Athletics Championships in Budapest, Hungary, where the final of Javelin Throw is going to see a battle between Indian star Neeraj Chopra and Pakistan’s Arshad Nadeem.

Neeraj hit two targets with a single throw

Let us tell you that after the qualification round of Group A and Group B held on Friday, 12 athletes have made it to the final. India’s Neeraj Chopra topped Group A. In the qualification round, he made just one throw and broke all records by clearing a distance of 88.7 metres. The qualification standard was 85.5m which Neeraj crossed in a single throw. With this, he reached the final in a single throw. Also, after reaching the final, he also confirmed his Paris Olympics 2024 ticket. Now he is going to face 11 bravehearts in the final, in which two Indians are also there and one is Arshad Nadeem of Pakistan.

Arshad Nadeem will give competition to Neeraj!

Arshad Nadeem, who entered the Group B qualification, made a poor start with a throw of 70.63m but managed a 81.53m in his second throw. After this, in the third throw, he made a place in the final by covering a distance of 86.79 meters. He was less than 2 meters behind Neeraj Chopra. That is, in the final, the Indian star can get a fight with the javelin thrower of Pakistan. That means the competition is going to be interesting. On the other hand, Anderson Peters, who defeated Neeraj Chopra last time, could not even qualify for the finals this time.
