Dark clouds hover over Hima Das‘ participation in the World Championships relay events after her name was not included in the initial entries declared on Friday.

Her name, however, can still be added by Monday (September 16) midnight.

On September 9, the Athletics Federation of India (AFI), named seven women (including Hima) for the 4x400m relay and 4x400m mixed relay races.

Hima’s name was missing in the initial entry of Indian women athletes for the two relay races submitted by AFI to the IAAF for the September 27 to October 6 event in Doha.

Her non-inclusion in the initial list has put a question mark on her participation.

The world junior champion has been suffering from lower back pain after the Asian Games in 2018.
