Hima Das The Golden Girl
Hima Das: Hima Das won her fifth gold medal of the season in 400m race at the Nove Mesto nad Metuji Grand Prix in the Czech Republic on July 20. Hima Das finished first with the last-minute spurt of speed with a season-best time of 52.09 seconds. Her personal best time is 50.79 seconds, which she had clocked during the 2018 Asian Games.
“Golden Girl”, say netizens after the victory of Hima Das at the fifth gold medal of the month
In early April,
Das had not finished the 400-meter run of the Asian Athletics Cup because of spasm on the back. This time, however, Das, fondly called “Dhing Express,” turned his head and was commended for his performances.
Hima Das won her first gold in this season at the Poznan Athletics Grand Prix in Poland on July 2, followed by a second gold in 200m at the Kutno Athletics Meet in Poland. Das won her third gold in 200m at the Kladno Athletics Meet in the Czech Republic with a timing of 23.43 seconds. Her fourth gold came in 200m at the Tabor Athletics Meet on July 17.
Hima Das with her incredible achievement received praise from not only the Prime Minister but also the President and top Bollywood and sports personalities. Hima Das replied to every tweet thanking them for the good wishes with a promise to work even harder.
Indian sprinter Hima Das extended her sensational run by claiming her fifth gold of the month as she returned to her pet 400m competition with a season-best time of 52.09s in Nove Mesto, the Czech Republic on Saturday.
The timing is slower than her personal best of 50.79 seconds, which she managed at the Jakarta Asian Games and she also narrowly missed out on the World Championships qualifying mark of 51.80.
However, it was better than the timing of 52.88 seconds, which she managed earlier in the season.
It was Hima’s fifth gold medal since July 2 when she ran her first competitive race in Europe.
