Guwahati : The mystery shrouding around Hima Das on her participation for the World Championships to be held in Doha seems to be unraveling. But putting all speculations at rest, Hima Das will now not participate at the World Championships putting at rest all the speculations that have been trending past few weeks.
It is well understood now that the AFI is not taking any risk on Hima Das at Doha and even the foreign coach Galina Bukharina believes she should not be risked following a barrage of excuses explained by the sports committee on her possible participation at the Doha challenge.

Even in the case of 400m hurdler Dharun Ayyasamy, the AFI is undecided. But there is all possibility that, despite his name figuring in team list for the World Championships, he might not board the flight to Doha at all. Under the circumstances, the fabled 400m relay teams, touted as India’s greatest hopes in the Olympics, seem to be weaker than anticipated. Especially, in the 4×400m women’s and mixed categories.
