The ace Indian sprinter Hima Das advanced to the women’s 200m semifinals, after winning her heat with a timing of 23.42 seconds at the ongoing Commonwealth Games (CWG) 2022 on Friday.

The 22-year-old Hima took the lead in the five-woman competition, from the start with Rhoda Njobvu of Zambia clocking 23.85 seconds to finish second, while Uganda’s Jacent Nyamhunge finished third with a timing of 24.07 seconds.

There are six heats lined up in the women’s 200m and the top-16 will qualify for the semi-final.

Hima won heat 2 but Favour Ofili of Nigeria (22.71s in Heat 1) and the formidable Elaine-Thompson-Herah (22.80s in heat 5) had superior timings.

At least six athletes have clocked better time, compared to Hima, en route their semi-final entries.
