“I dedicate my medal to India and to people of Assam”, says Hima Das

Hima Das spoke after winning at the Asian games, “I don't think of the medal, just to improve my timing. Even here, the timing was good and a national record was made so I am happy. Feels good to break your own record and I hope that the record stays for long. I get nervous but I don't think, I only run. There is pressure after the world championships, if I would be able to perform or not. But I had already told my coach that I wanted to better my timing. That does not happen while running, just before running I get nervous. I dedicate this medal to India and especially to the people of Assam.”
