From the word go, Anas lit up the track on fire and as a result, it was too easy for him to dominate opponents in the race.

Anas sealed the deal in men’s race in just 32.41 seconds. After the win, Anas expressed his happiness to have won the yellow metal for the country. “Glad to have won the gold in men’s 300m at the Athleticky Mitink Reiter 2019 in the Czech Republic in a timing of 32.41 secs,” he tweeted.
Anas who is the national record holder has already qualified for the 400m event for the World Championships which is to be held in Doha in September-October while Hima is yet to achieve it.
Talking about Hima Das, she too finished on the top in 300 m to win a Gold medal in the Athleticky Mitink Reiter 2019 in the Czech Republic. This was her sixth gold since July 2.
It has been quite a memorable past month and a half for Hima Das. She is now showing calmness and composure when at the age of 19. She is writing new success stories for herself by taking her energy to the next step in intensity.
However, her current focus will now move to World Championships next month, and she will be looking forward to showcasing her mettle.
Her last win came on July 20 when she bagged a gold in her pet 400m event at Nove Mesto in the Czech Republic.
Her staggering gold-winning spree started back in July. It is a long and historic stretch that will forever be remembered in the hearts of the Indians.
