One year old video of Hima Das winning a 400 meter race shared as the yesterday’s race where she won 5th gold in 3 weeks

The 400-meter race that Hima Das completed in 51.46 seconds was the first gold medal won by any Indian last year

Sprinting sensation from Assam Hima Das has made sporting history yesterday by winning 5 gold medals in just three weeks. On July 20, she won her 5th Gold in a 400 meter run in the Czech Republic, after 4 golds in 200-meter events in this month in various events in Europe. Praises have been pouring for the 19-year-old youth icon from every quarter, with the President of India also congratulating her and hoping for an Olympics gold in a tweet posted in Assamese.

While praising Hima Das, many people posted a video of a 400-meter event won by Hima Das, implying this is the event where she won the latest gold medal. The video has been posted by journalists, politicians and several ordinary social media users.

Although Hima is seeing winning the race in the video, it is not the race that took place in the Czech Republic on 20th July. The 400-meter race that Hima Das completed in 51.46 seconds was the first gold medal won by any Indian at the IAAF World under-20 Athletics Championships that took place in Finland in July last year. In the video, we can clearly hear the commentator saying that before this India has never won any track event. Hima Das had changed that dismal record of India on 12 July last year.

On the other hand, her 400-meter race yesterday was a bit slower which was completed in 52.09 seconds.

The race in the Czech Republic that took place yesterday can be seen embedded in the above tweet.
