Hima’s parents and well-wishers missed the Silver moment
GUWAHATI: It was a second-time disappointment for friends, relatives, and well-wishers at golden girl and Asian Games silver medallist Hima Das's village Kandulimari, as they could not watch her perform live at the Asian Games 400-metre finals.
Last time, during the IAAF championships – where Hima won a gold – there was a power cut.
Though preparations were made in advance and a projector with screen was installed outside Hima's residence, there was some technical issue because of which the entire crowd was left to watch a blank screen at the last moment.
The technical issue could not be resolved and everyone present there including Hima's parents missed the glorious moment where Hima clinched a silver medal for the country.
