India’s ace sprinter Dutee Chand qualified for the Tokyo Olympics in both 100m and 200m races via the world rankings quota on Wednesday.

 

22 spots were available in 100m and 15 spots in 200m via the world rankings route. Dutee’s overall position of World No. 44 in 100m and World No. 51 in 200m made her eligible to qualify for next month’s Tokyo Games.

Dutee had failed in her last race to secure a direct Olympic qualification spot after finishing a disappointing fourth in the women’s 100m final at the 60th National Inter-State Senior Athletics Championships in Patiala.

Last week, even though Dutee scripted a new national record in the women’s 100m with a time of 11.17 seconds in the Indian Grand Prix (IGP) 4 in Patiala, she missed the Olympic qualification time by just 0.02 seconds.

However, Hima Das failed to book her berth for the Olympics via the world rankings quota. Last week, she fell short of securing the direct qualification as her best timing of 22.88s came in the Indian Grand Prix 4. Hima missed the 200m qualifying mark by 00.08 seconds.

Earlier on Tuesday, the Sports and Youth Services Department Government of Odisha recommended Dutee Chand for the Rajiv Gandhi Khel Ratna Award.
