Hima has been running in a string of 200m in the last few weeks but this was her first 400m after having retired midway in quartermile heats at the Asian championships, Doha in April.

Not only that, the 19-year-old donated half of her monthly salary to Chief Minister’s Relief Fund for relief efforts towards Assam’s devastating floods. Hima also urged everyone to make donations for the same.
