Hima Das’ Olympic hopes damaged with a back injury, pray for India’s golden girl

India’s golden girl, Hima Das has been on a phenomenal form since July. The ace sprinter kept on hitting the headlines for her achievements. She won 6 gold medals within 2 months.

All of a sudden, she picked up a back injury, which means she will no longer be a part in the World Athletics Championships. This also causes a void in her Olympic preparation. She is not fully fit because she has a lower back spasm and that would affect her running.

Even during her training session in Europe, as part of preparations for the World Championships, she ran just only one 400m race as she suffered some pain while running longer distances.

Yes, Olympics are 10 months away and Hima have a lot of time to recover. But if she is to mark her presence on the big stage, she should be fit enough to compete for the event.
