(OdishaSports): Indian sprinter Dutee Chand’s World Championships campaign ended in disappointment in the women’s 100m heats here on Saturday.
Dutee clocked 11.48 seconds in her heat, well below her season best which stands at 11.26s. She had failed to meet the qualifying standards for world championships in 2019 but she made it to Doha meet after getting an invite from the IAAF. On the same tracks in April during the Asian Championships, the 23-year-old Dutee had clocked 11.28 seconds during the heats and 11.26 seconds (national record) in the semifinals. But on Saturday, she came up with her third-worst time of the season, after the 11.51 seconds in February.
