Indian sprinter VK Vismaya made the entire nation proud by producing a gritty performance on the track clocking 52.12 seconds to win a gold in women’s 400m run at the International Athletic Meeting in Brno, Czech Republic.

The 22-year-old Indian athlete got hold of the yellow metal, while MR Poovamma and Subha Venkatesan finished second and third by clocking 53.47s and Sudha 53.67s respectively.

Vismaya, who had previously chipped in with a personal best of 52.48 at Nové Mesto nad Metují in the same country last month, along with India’s other premier quarter milers, has been in Europe in the long run.

Vismaya has upped her ante and took her performance to a whole new level on the tracks.

After been viewed as a weak link in India’s 400m women’s relay team not long ago, the Kerala girl is finally showing tremendous progress.

Meanwhile, Hima Das, who has recently won 6 gold medals in European races and that too in a short stint, didn’t compete in this event.
