It indeed is a proud moment for Indians all around the World as sports is reaching new heights. Yes, gone are the days when sports in our country was only and only about cricket. India has produced way too many blazing guns and Hima Das is one of them. Our country’s star sprinter has managed to bag 4 gold medals in just 15 days. Definitely a huge feat for us desis all around the World. 

 

Hima Das in a historic win, clinched her fourth gold medal as she won the 200 mt in Tabor Aesthetics Meet. She is the first Indian woman, in fact the first ever athlete to win a Gold in any format of a World track event. The teenager who made it globally with her raw talent has only been getting better with every race and only getting faster with every passing race. Needless to say she is an inspiration to all the young boomers  with a message that if you’re really passionate and dedicated towards your goal than anything is possible. 

 

 

While this talented woman is painting the tri-colour globally, here’s everything you need to know about her. 

 

1.Hima Das was born in the wake of the new century on January 9th 2000. Infact, she had always wanted to be a footballer. Hima would play for the local clubs as a striker and was pretty good at it. However, it was only in 2016 wherein her PE coach told her to try her hand in an individual event. The rest as we all say is history. 

2. Das is the youngest of the five kids of Ranjit and Jomali Das. Her parents have always been supportive of her career choice. Incredible indeed! 

3. In an unfortunate state of affairs, Hima Das had absolutely no sports gear for her till 2 years ago. 

 

 

4. Assam is known for its rice terrain and the sprinter would cover the lengths of the muddy fields of her school where her fellow schoolmates would play football. So much is her talent that within a few months of training, she qualified for state championships in Guwahati where she won a  bronze medal. 

5. Its surprising that Hima has never had any formal training. However she performed was all because of her raw strength. She made it to the finals of the Junior National Championships iin Coimbatore. 

 

 

6. Hima really worked very hard on her running and timing. Post her Coimbatore success her two coaches spoke to her parents to let her take on full time training. Hima’s parents were extremely supportive and encouraged her for the same. 

7. Her performance in the Federation Cup gave her the Golden ticket to the Commonwealth Games in Australia. She stood first in the 400 mts race with a timing of 51.97 seconds. 

 

 

Ever since then there has been no looking back for her. Hima Das is a true champion at the mere age of 19 and it is heart-warming to see the World applauding her. She truly has made India proud we are all so thankful to her for flaring the National flag on International waters. We salute you Hima Das!
