India’s fastest woman Dutee Chand won her second gold of the Khelo India University Games after she bagged the top honours in the 200m final here on Sunday.

The 24-year-old, who is representing Kalinga Institute of Industrial Technology, clinched the gold medal with a timing of 23.66 seconds.

Kirti Vijay Bhoite from the University of Mumbai settled for silver with a timing of 24.98 seconds while Deepali Mahapatra from Utkal University won the bronze, clocking 25.19 seconds. “It feels very good to win the 200m gold. In 100m, it’s difficult to gauge when to run in full throttle and when to relax a little bit, but in 200m, it’s easier to understand when to run in full speed and when to ease out. However, a runner has to exert much more in a 200m race,” said Dutee after her win.
