Hima Das faces a tough competition from Taylor Manson
...
Hello, and welcome to our coverage of the IAAF World Championship final.

Many Indians will be eagerly waiting for Hima Das to be on track on Thursday for the 400m sprint in the IAAF World Championships final. Das is not prepared to play second foil to anybody as she remains the favourite to win the gold medal, which in itself is a rare expectation of an Indian sprinter.

Providing the toughest challenge to her would be Taylor Manson who has clocked at 51.74 seconds in the semi-finals, while Das clocked 51.32. This would be a first for an Indian sprinter at this championship if she manages to nudge past all her challengers.

Das, the daughter of a rice farmer, couldn't even manage to explain to her mother what the Commonwealth Games were when she qualified for it. She had won the gold medal at the Federation Cup to qualify for the competition where she fared beyond expectations to stand 6th.​
