Hima, also famous as the Dhing Express, had won her fifth international gold clocking a season-best of 52.09 seconds at Nove Mesto, also in the Czech Republic.
Her fifth top podium finish had come inside three weeks after she grabbed the first gold of the season in the women’s 200m race at the Poznan Athletics Grand Prix in Poland on July 2.
After that, she won her second 200m gold at the Kutno Athletics Meet, also in Poland, on July 7 with a time of 23.97.
On July 13, she won her third 200m gold at the Kladno Athletics Meet in Czech Republic with a time of 23.43 while her fourth gold came at the Tabor Athletics Meet in the same country.
Her superb run in the European circuit was hailed across the country with even Prime Minister Modi commending her on her gold medal winning spree.
Countless other celebrities — from super star Amitabh Bachchan to cricketers Suresh Raina and Mithali Raj and actors Arjun Kapoor and Sonam Kapoor — too hailed Hima’s performances.
