But popularly known as “Dhing Express”, Hima Das misses the flight to Tokyo Olympic as the qualification mark stands at 22.80 seconds and Das finished her race in 22.88 seconds.

The decision for the 400m track event will be made today, although her clearing this particular track event seems to be less likely. In the 2018 Asian Games in Jakarta, Indonesia, Das made an Indian national record of 400m with a timing of 50.79sec.
