Dutee Chand won second silver medal at the Asian Games 2018

.

Jakarata;29/8/18:India’s star sprinter Dutee Chand won a silver medal after she clocked 23.20 to finish second in Women’s 200m Final event on the 11th day of the Asian Games 2018 on Wednesday.

Bahrain’s Edidiong Odiong finished on top with a timing of 22.96 seconds, while China’s Yongli Wei clinched a bronze as she clocked 23.27 to secure the third position

This was Dutee’s second bronze medal at the 2018 Asian Games as she earlier won the same medal in the Women’s 100m Final event. It was India’s first medal in 20 years in the 100m dash. Running in lane number 7, Dutee clocked 11.32 seconds, a tad below her national record of 11.29 seconds

With her second Asiad medal, Dutee joined her illustrious compatriots such as PT Usha in the list of athletes who have won more than one medal at the Asian Games.

It has been an outstanding show by the 22-year-old Odisha sprinter who was not allowed to compete in 2014-15 under the IAAF’s hyperandrogenism policy due to which she missed the 2014 Commonwealth and Asian Games. She fought and won a case against this policy at the Court of Arbitration for Sports.

In a recent revision of the hyperandrogenism policy of the IAAF, Dutee has been left out of its purview.
