Pakistan now has eight medals from the Commonwealth Games in 2022.

Pakistan already has eight medals in the Commonwealth Games 2022, thanks largely to the five medals earned by wrestlers. Arshad Nadeem is the most recent gold medalist in the javelin throw. On August 8, Nadeem earned the country’s second gold medal at the 2018 Commonwealth Games in Birmingham.

Nadeem set a new record in the first round of the javelin throw final with an 86.81-metre throw. Arshad broke his own record in the second attempt with an 88m throw, followed by an 85.09m throw in the fourth attempt to maintain his lead.

The Olympian established a new CWG record of 90.18m on her fifth attempt, becoming the first Pakistani to hold the record. Nooh Dasatgir Butt, like Arshad, set a CWG 2022 record by lifting a total of 405 kg. He won a gold medal for his outstanding performance on Wednesday [August 3] evening. The nation is showing their love and admiration for both gold medalists.

Pakistani wrestlers Mohammad Sharif Tahir and Ali Asad won silver and bronze medals on August 6. Pakistan now has a total of six silver and bronze medals – three bronze and three silver.
