22nd Asian Athletics Championships: #Odia Sprinter Dutee Chand Wins Bronze #Odisha

Odia sprinter Dutee Chand claimed bronze in women’s 100mts sprint, while Odisha’s hope were shattered after Amiya Mallick was disqualified in the semi-final of 100mts men’s event for making a false start.

Kazakhs Viktoriya Zyabkina & Olga Safronova win gold and silver ahead of Dutee Chand.

“I am very happy for getting a medal at the Asian Athletics Championships here. It was raining and the track was wet and I was nervous. I hoped for World Championship qualification here but there are other events wherein I can target qualification,” said Dutee.
