Starting her journey barefoot she now earns her name on shoes!
Nick named ‘Dhing Express’ Hima Das is an Indian Sprint runner holding a national record of winning a gold medal in 400 metres with a timing of 50.79 s at the 2018 Asian Games in Jakarta, Indonesia. She is the first athlete to win a gold medal in a track event at the IAAF World U20 Championships.
Starting her journey barefoot she has now made history remember her name. Rising with new heights everyday she has now marked herself with one of the renowned Shoe Brand ‘Addidas’.
Dhing Girl took her twitter handle to make the big announcement. She made her name inked on the shoe itself, the right side shoe will read her name and the left as ‘Create History’.
Das said that she hopes her performances reach the next level with Adidas’ sportswear. “I feel extremely proud to join the Adidas family and be a part of a great group of global athletes. Adidas has an incredible track record for helping athletes across sports and enabling them to reach the peak of their sport. With them, I hope to take my performances to the next level on the field and also help create change off it. Our aim together is to improve participation of Indian youth in sports and women empowerment and I am confident of creating the change with Adidas,” she said further.
Talking at the launch, Dave Thomas, MD, Adidas India said, “At Adidas, we believe that ‘through sport, we have the power to change lives’ and Hima is a great example of this. Over the last couple of years, Hima and many other Indian women have emerged as torchbearers with their outstanding performances.”
Being an inspiration for all she has now also been nominated for the Arjuna Award for her outstanding performance in the Asian games.
As it is said “A success that comes after hard work is always sweeter than one earned easily”. We wish the ‘Golden Girl’ good luck for her future.
