Bhubaneswar, Aug 30 (bdnews24.com/Reuters) – The country’s fastest runner, Ambassador Chand, has qualified for the Tokyo Olympics. According to the world rankings, he is eligible to compete in both the 100 and 200 meters. For the second time in his career, the ambassador will play in the Olympics. He qualified in the 100 meters at the 2016 Rio Olympics.
The ambassador sent a congratulatory message to the Tokyo media after receiving the ticket. Union Minister Dharmendra Pradhan tweeted congratulations to him. “The queen of the race and the glory ambassador of Odisha, Chand, has qualified for the Tokyo Olympics,” he wrote. I wish him every success in the 100 and 200 meters.
In the women’s 100m at the Tokyo Olympics, she qualified in 11.15 seconds. At the Indian Grand Prix in Patiala on the 21st, the envoy (11.18 seconds) managed to break the previous national record in his name with a sharp improvement in timing. But in .02 seconds, he missed the Olympics qualifying time. Otherwise he could have qualified directly.
The last 28 days were the last day of the qualifying round for the Tokyo Olympics. The 70th Inter-State Athletics Championships in Patiala ended yesterday. But the ambassador lost his chance to qualify directly due to injury.
The final list of all events for the Tokyo Olympics has been released today. In the women’s 100 meters, a total of 35 people competed in the 100-meter dash directly to Tokyo. Similarly, 22 people have qualified according to world standards and 20 out of 7 reserved tickets for universities.
- After the ambassador set a national record, he was ranked 7th to 8th in the world. He also finished 51st in the 200m with 117 points. The ambassador is happy to have qualified in both events. Last time, Srabani Nand qualified for the Rio Olympics in the 200 meters.
- “First of all, I would like to thank the people of the state, my fans and our Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik,” he said. This is the second time in a row that he has competed in the Olympics. In the last 100 meters, I could not give a good timing due to the slight pull of the leg muscles. I really tried hard to qualify. At the last Indian Grand Prix, I missed .02 seconds. I had previously hoped that I would get a Tokyo ticket according to world standards. ‘
The ambassador said he would focus more on the 100 meters in Tokyo. “He aims to run in Tokyo between 11.05 and 11.10 seconds,” he said.
The ambassador has a national record since 2014. Earlier, Rachita Mistry had a national record in the 100 meters at 11.36. Sixteen years later, Dooti (11.33) broke the record at the 2014 National Federation Cup in New Delhi. On June 25, 2016, he broke the national record twice a day in Almaty, Kazakhstan. With a time of 11.24 seconds, he managed to qualify for the Rio Olympics. It was the first Olympics of his career. After a long gap of 34 years, the ambassador became the third Indian woman to compete in the 100 meters at the Rio Olympics. But his campaign ended with 11.4 seconds in the heat. On 11-10-2018, the ambassador broke his previous national record and set a new record (11.22).
The ambassador became the first Indian woman to win a gold medal in the 100 meters at the 2014 World University Games (Napoli). He won silver medals in both the 100 and 200 meters at the 2014 Asian Games. He also won four bronze medals at the Asian Athletics Championships.
A total of six people from across the state have been able to represent the Tokyo Olympics. Accompanying the ambassador are men’s hockey vice-captains Birendra Lakra and Amit Rohidas and women’s hockey vice-captain Deepagres Ekka. Arjun Award-winning World Champion Pramod Bhagat has also qualified for Tokyo. Para runner Jayanti Behera is also likely to win a Tokyo ticket.
