If you haven't heard of Hima Das by now then you're probably living under a rock. For those uninitiated, Hima is an ace Indian sprinter who's been winning gold medal after gold medal as of late. In a time span of just 19 days, the young athlete has won as many as 5 gold medals. Now, if that isn't commendable, we don't know what is. The latest medal she bagged was on Saturday.
Hima was at the Nove Mesto nad Metuji Grand Prix where she finished the 400m race with her season-best time of 52.09 seconds. Her personal best, however, is 50.79 seconds, which she had clocked at the Asian Games last year. Needless to say, everyone is super proud of how much the young athlete has accomplished. And while netizens were commending her on her spectacular feat, even B-town celebs took to their social media handles to laud Hima.
The likes of Amitabh Bachchan, Anil Kapoor, Anushka Sharma, Sonam Kapoor, Suniel Shetty among others had a lot of wonderful things to say about Hima. Here are some of their tweets. Check them out below:
