Proud moment for Assam: Hima Das wins 2nd international gold in 200m race in Poland

Indian sprinter Hima Das won her second International Gold in women’s 200m with a top finish at the Kutno Meet in Poland on Sunday.

Hima, who has been combating her back problem for the past few months, beat VK Vismaya who won silver by 9 seconds (Hima Das: 23.97. VK Vismaya: 24.06).

This was Hima’s second competitive 200m race of the year. She has a personal best of 23.10s, which she clocked last year.

In her first competitive 200m race of the year, the Assam runner had clocked 23.65s on her way to gold in the Poznan Athletics Grand Prix, also in Poland, on Tuesday. Vismaya had finished third in that meet with a personal best time of 23.75.

Hima is the world junior champion and national record holder in 400m.
