Guwahati: Hima Das is simply unstoppable on tracks and the ace sprinter is proving that again and again with back to back five gold medals won in the same month in the international competitions. It has been 19 days only and Hima is on a roll!
The unmatchable performance showed by the Queen of the tracks has compelled people to go ga-ga over her traits. Right from the first man of the country, i.e., the President of India to the sports personalities, Bollywood actors, politicians and the laymen, everybody is all praises for the Assam girl and rightly, Hima das deserves every bit of the good wishes pouring in for her.
The best part is to know the amazing words written and said by the legends, the megastars and top leaders of the nation for the “Dhing Express”. In Sachin Tendulkar’s words, she is “an inspiration for the youth”. Tendulkar took time out to write really good words for the Assam girl that reads- “Loving the way you have been running in the European circuit over the last 19 days. Your hunger to win and perseverance is an inspiration for the youth. Congrats on your 5 Medals! All the best for the future races, @HimaDas8”.

Hima, at an age of just 19 years, is usurping laurels one after another and the pace at which she is earning fame and name seems will never come to an end. The last gold medal that she clichéd was on July 20, Saturday when she clocked a season-best timing of 52.09 seconds on a 400m track at the Nove Mesto nad Metuji Grand Prix. However, Hima’s personal best timing is 50.79 seconds that she attained at the 2018 Asian Games.
Let’s see what does President Ram Nath Kovind has to tell in Assamese about her in his tweet on her new feat:
তিনি সপ্তাহত পাঁচটা স্বৰ্ণ পদক! হিমা দাস, এয়া সঁচাকৈয়ে দুৰ্দান্ত প্ৰদৰ্শন। তুমি এনেদৰেই দুৰন্ত গতিৰে আগুৱাই যোৱা আৰু জিলিকি থাকা। তোমাৰ এই সফলতাই ২০২০ চনৰ অলিম্পিকত ভাৰতৰ বাবে বিজয়বাৰ্তা কঢ়িয়াই আনক, তাৰেই কামনা কৰিছোঁ- ৰাষ্ট্ৰপতি কোৱিন্দ@HimaDas8
— President of India (@rashtrapatibhvn) July 21, 2019
This is not the one, he also tweeted his congratulatory message in Hindi for the sprinter:
एक और स्वर्णिम सफलता की बधाई !!#HimaDas ने चेकगणराज्य में नोवे मेस्टो नाड मेटुजी ग्रां प्री में महिलाओं की 400 मीटर स्पर्धा में पहला पायदान हांसिल किया हैं।
