Posting a video from the moment Hima Das started running to the moment she was standing on the podium with Indian flag waving high, PM Modi was feeling extremely moved while sharing the post.
“I was extremely moved. Which Indian won’t have tears of joy seeing this!”, read PM Modi’s tweet that showed that Modi was extremely touched while witnessing the entire moment of pride for the country.
Unforgettable moments from @HimaDas8’s victory.
Seeing her passionately search for the Tricolour immediately after winning and getting emotional while singing the National Anthem touched me deeply. I was extremely moved.

He not only wished her but also asserted that her passion and accomplishment is certainly an inspiration for the athletes across the country in the coming years.

On Thursday, July 12, the 18-year-old Das took only 51.46s to complete the 400m track. At the end of the sprint, while every other sprinter was panting, Hima did not take a second to rest. She was running with the victory on her shoulders and holding Indian flag on top her and waved it around the stadium. Her spirit was unmatchable and the victory was certainly not new for her.
She made the entire country emotional when she lip-synched with the National Anthem that was being played during the medal distribution ceremony. There is no doubt about the fact that the woman made us all proud of her with the remarkable win.
