Tokyo/UNI: Ace Indian sprinter Dutee Chand crashed out of the Tokyo Olympics after her early exit in the women’s 200m event at the Olympic Stadium on Monday.

Competing in the heats, Dutee clocked 23.85 seconds to finish seventh and last in what was her first run over the distance for the season.

The 25-year-old Chand’s personal best in the 200m is 23.00s, set at the 2018 Asian Games in Jakarta.

Namibia’s Christine Mboma won the heats with a timing of 22.11 seconds, a new national record, while Gabrielle Thomas of the US was second in 22.20 seconds.

Niger’s Aminatou Seyni came in third with a timing of 22.72 seconds to secure the three automatic qualifying slots for the semi-finals.

The top three finishers from each heat along with the three fastest timings across the seven races make the semi-finals.

Earlier, Dutee bowed out of the 100m competition at the Tokyo Olympics too.
