Country’s first athlete to win gold in track event
Hima won gold in the 400 meter race of the Under-20 World Athletics Championship held in Finland in 2018. She became the first athlete in the country to do so in a track event. He finished the race in 51.46 seconds.
20-year-old athlete Hima Das was nominated for the Khel Ratna last year. However, he could not get this award.
Hima also won Gold in Jakarta Asian Games
Hima won the silver in the 4x400m mixed relay of the 2018 Jakarta Asian Games, but the gold got to the Indian team due to a ban due to doping on the winning team. At the same time, she also won gold in the women’s 4×400 relay race.
Even in 2019, he continued this series of successes. Within a month, Hima won 5 gold in different international events.
