Who challenged Neeraj Chopra for javelin throw?


Who challenged Neeraj Chopra for a javelin throw?  Arshad Nadeem, in an interview back in 2018, Nadeem revealed how he aspires to become like Neeraj one day and even defeat him at his own game “Javelin throw”. “Neeraj Chopra is an amazing uprising talent. I’ve competed with him about eight times which includes Asian Junior Championships and SAFF Championships in India. The only exception would be that he has a foreign coach and I don’t. His achievements in Javelin Throw inspire me and my goal is to give him a hard competition, maybe, beat him too,” Arshad Nadeem told the Press Trust of India.

Pakistan’s Arshad Nadeem was one of the athletes to qualify for the 2018 Asian Games Javelin Throw final by acquiring the automatic qualification mark with a fantabulous throw of 85.16 meters and finishing right behind Germany’s Johannes Vetter and India’s Neeraj Chopra.

There have been few speculations made on social media about Nadeem challenging Neeraj for the Javelin Throw which could be false as both of them haven’t said anything about each other recently. But they might face each other in upcoming official events happening in few months.
