Hima Das is an 18-year-old from Assam. Her father is a rice farmer. But what she has done has just defined her. She has just become the first Indian woman to win a Gold at the IAAF World Under-20 Athletics Championship in Tampere, Finland!
She ran 400 meters in 51.46 seconds. She is the first Indian woman to EVER bag a gold or even an U-20 Gold at any International track meet.
Romania got the Silver, and USA the Bronze.
