Guwahati: Assam sprinter Hima Das said that she was satisfied with her performance at the Commonwealth Games 2022.
She said this while speaking at a press conference at the Vivanta Hotel in Guwahati on August 11.
"I have played with many strong players this time. The weather in Birmingham was very chilly on the day I had my semi-final match. I understand the value of 0.01 microseconds," Hima said.
"All games are equal for me. When I was injured, I had to face a lot of difficulties as we are restricted from consuming all kinds of medicine," she added.
When asked about boxer Lovlina Borgohain, she responded by saying, "Lovlina is a good player. She has also worked very hard. I believe she will make Assam proud in the Asian Games. She will again play in the Olympics."
Hima Das also congratulated Nayanmoni Saikia and praised her spirit for working tirelessly to clinch a gold medal at the Commonwealth Games 2022.
Furthermore, Hima reacted to trolls by asserting that she is least bothered about other people's opinions, adding that some people in society only have the habit of commenting on others.
