Hima Das scripted history by becoming the first ever Indian athlete to have won Gold in the 400m final at the IAAF World U-20 Athletics Championship. The 18-year-old Das from Assam, a pre-tournament favorite, clocked 51.46s to win the gold. She now joins the illustrious company of star javelin thrower Neeraj Chopra, who won a gold in Poland in the last edition in 2016 in a world record effort. In fact, Das is the first Indian track athlete to have won a medal in the history of this competition. The previous medal winners at the World Junior Championships were Seema Punia (bronze in the discus in 2002) and Navjeet Kaur Dhillon (bronze in the discus in 2014).
Congratulations Message poured for her on Social Media and everyone was proud of her achievement and even Indian MMA superstar Arjan Singh Bhullar took to Twitter to congratulate on her achievement and said she is an inspiration of women in India.
