Asian Games 2018 | Hima Das disqualified from 200m semifinals

Guwahati, August 28: Indian sprinter Hima Das on Tuesday had a very disappointing exit from Asian Games 2018.

She was disqualified from 200m semi-final due to a false start. Das had clinched a silver medal in the 400m.

Dutee Chand qualified for the final after topping her race with a timing of 23 seconds.

It may be mentioned that the shocking exit is similar to the disqualification of Usain Bolt in 2011’s World Athletics Championships.

India currently stands at ninth spot, with eight golds, 16 silver and 21 bronze. The total medal tally for India is 45.
