The Athletics Federation of India named a 20-strong squad for the upcoming World Relays in Silesia, Poland.
The TN sprinter announced her arrival at the 24th Federation Cup National Athletics Championship in Patiala, clinching gold in the much-anticipated 100m event by clocking 11.39 seconds.
Addressing the gathering after her induction as DSP, the 21-year-old Hima revealed that she had dreamt of becoming a police officer when she was young.
The national record holder, however, will face Hima Das, who has decided to compete in 100m and 200m at the season’s second senior track and field event.
Hima had won gold at the World Junior championships in 400m and is also the national record holder.
The 21-year-old is currently preparing for the upcoming Tokyo Olympics qualification at Netaji Subhas National Institute of Sports, Patiala.
Hima Das became the first Indian woman indeed the first ever Indian athlete to win a gold medal in any format of a global track event.
All walks of life have crawled to some kind of normalcy. So did sports. Training is back and so are some select competitions.
She scored 63 in English, 84 in Assamese, 60 in Advanced Assamese, 75 in Political Science, 67 in Education and 46 in Geography.
Non-cricketing female sportspersons made sure that 2018 was not only about men in blue but also about women who sweat it out equally.
The team claimed a top-podium finish after they completed the race within a clock timing of 3:28.72 in the final round.
India has been winning the gold in this event since 2002 Asian Games.
Hima, the silver medallist in the women's 400m, lined up for the semifinal heat number two but had to make a premature exit due to a false start.
Athletes Hima, Anas and Dutee lend silver lining to India’s day in track events by notching up three second-place finishes.
Asleep when Hima ran into history late at night, villagers make up for it by bursting crackers and distributing sweets.
