An inspiration for the entire country #HimaDas makes Indian proud.First ever Indian athlete to win gold medal in women's 400 meter race in the Under-20 Athletics Junior Championships. #womenpower #proudindian— Sidharth Malhotra (@S1dharthM) July 13, 2018
To understand the magnitude of #HimaDas achievement : No Indian track athlete (seniors or juniors) has ever medalled in the World Championships. Anju Bobby George did it in the seniors and Neeraj in the juniors but neither was track. This is historic. Heart swells with pride.— Rahul Bose (@RahulBose1) July 13, 2018
