Must Read

Guwahati, June 28 (NKTV): As per reports, Karnataka’s AT Dhaneshwari is likely to substitute injured Hima Das’ place in the women’s 100m relay final on Tuesday as the Indian quartet makes a final bid for Olympics qualification during the ongoing National Inter-State Championships in Patiala.

It is to be mentioned here that Hima had sustained a hamstring injury while running the 100m heats on Saturday and is unlikely to take further part in the championships, unless she makes a recovery in the next 48 hours. She is, however, listed among eight finalists for the 200m race to be run on Tuesday.

The heat races for the 200m were not held on Sunday after Dutee, Dhanalakshmi and Archana pulled out.

The Athletics Federation of India said that direct final will be held on Tuesday.
