Hima Das set for Asian Games debut; Silver Medal likely
GUWAHATI: Assam's Golden girl Hima Das has set her sights on the ongoing Asian Games at Jakarta, Indonesia. Hima Das will be making her Asian Games debut this year by blazing the tracks today (Saturday, 25th, August).
The run will start at 7:10 pm (Indian Time).
According to her coach, Nipon Das, she's all set to bag a Silver medal.
Her prime competitor is Naser Salwa from Bahrain. Naser's best for 400 m was recorded under 51 secs, a record which might be tough for Hima to beat.
With 15 competitors in the race, Hima will make her run in lane number 3.
"Gold depends upon her luck and the competition she gives," added Nipon.
Regardless of the medal, we are waiting for Hima's phenomenal performance.
