Did Himas Das win the gold medal at Commonwealth Games 2022? As of now, she didn't start her CWG 2022 journey yet. Her event is on August 6. But there is a video surfacing on Social media showing that Hima Das won the gold medal in the 400m relay.
People and a few celebrities, including legendary cricketer Virender Shewag, shared tweets and congratulated Hima Das. However, they deleted their tweets later. Actually, it is an old video from 2018, where Hima Das is seen running 400 meters and winning gold.
Hima Das won the 400 m final at the World U-20 Championships 2018 in Tampere, Finland, on July 12, 2018, clocking 51.46 seconds to become the first Indian sprinter to win a gold medal at an international track event.
Hima das has not started her campaign yet. Why so hurry Mr Patra and Mr Sehwag. An old video is prompting many to tweet this fake news. Now they have deleted the tweet. She is participating in 200m and 4*100m relay. @sambitswaraj @virendersehwag #HimaDas #CommonwealthGames2022 pic.twitter.com/4dxegSWMca— Pankaj Priyadershi (@BBCPankajP) July 30, 2022
