Who is Hima Dass?



Hima Das, nicknamed the Dhing Express, is an Indian sprint runner from the state of Assam.

Hima born in a poor family in the District Nagaon of Assam. On Thursday evening, she created history in Tampere, Finland by winning the gold medal -- the second by an Indian athlete -- in the women's 400 metre event at the IAAF World U20 Championships.
On Thursday, athlete Hima Das made history by becoming India's first ever track and field gold medallist at the IAAF World Championships, when she aced the women's 400 m event at the IAAF World U-20 Championships in Tampere, Finland. The 18-year-old from Assam clocked 51.46 seconds, edging out Romania's Andrea Milkos (silver) and American Taylor Manson (bronze).
A Farmer's daughter from the village of Dhing in Assam's Nagaon district, Hima's talent was spotted by Nipon Das last January and he become her coach after that. Nipon, an athletics coach with the Directorate of Sports and Youth Welfare, convinced Hima to shift to Guwahati for betterment.
Hima had a slow start and was trailing at least three other runners going into final stretch. But the 18-year-old produced a powerful sprint in the last 100 metres to win by a comfortable margin.  Delhi's Neeraj Chopra was the first Indian to win gold at the World U20 Championships when he won the men's javelin event in 2016.

Other Indian medallists in World Junior Championships were Seema Punia who took bronze in women's discus in 2002 and Navjeet Kaur Dhillon.

At the New Delhi Indian GP last May, she finished fifth at the 100m, but in September she showed what she was capable of by finishing first at the 200meter at the Chennai Indian Open.
And this is how Him Das became the first Indian woman to win an IAAF world title.
With the success at World U20 Championships making her a favourite for the gold at next month's Asian Games, both Hima Dass and her millions of fans back home will be hoping for more than one medal at the continental extravaganza.

Hima dass also  used to play football earlier and had dreamt of representing India in football Matches. She had switched to athletics before two years ago.
