In her first competitive 200m race of the year that was held on July 2, Hima had clocked 23.65s to win gold at the Poznan Athletics Grand Prix in Poland. It was only after 5 days at the Kutno Athletics Meet, also in Poland, that she clinched her second gold with a considerable time of 23.97 seconds, followed by a third 200m gold at the Kladno Athletics Meet in Czech Republic with a time of 23.43 on July 13.
Hima Das at the 2018 Asian Games in Jakarta, Indonesia India's shining glory, Hima Das, who has most often been touted as a strong prospect for India to claim back-to-back medals in 200m events, scripted history in July last year at the World U-20 Championships at Tampere, Finland, by becoming the first Indian sprinter to win a gold medal at the international level. The young Assam sprinter has been sprinting towards success ever since. Hima has become an icon in her home state, Assam, ever since she became the first Indian sprinter to win a gold at a global athletics meet in July last year. Nicknamed as the Dhing Express, Hima has contributed to the Chief Minister's Relief Funds with reports suggesting that she has donated half of the salary she receives from the Indian Oil Corporation for Assam which has been reeling from the worst spell of floods in recent years.
