By Our Correspondent

NEW DELHI:Union PNG Minister Dharmendra Pradhan felicitating Rio Olympic qualifiers Dutee Chand and Srabani Nanda at New Delhi in presence of Union Sports Minister Vijay Goel on Tuesday.

Both Chand and Nanda hoped better and vowed to fetch laurels for the Country. Ministers Pradhan and Goel wished both of them best of luck.

The fastest Indian woman is not a big fan of fast cars. She prefers the sturdy designs of Mahindra over the sleek BMWs or Mercs. Affectionately called ‘Nano’ by her teammates after she had won Tata’s micro car for her superb show in 2013 School Nationals, Dutee Chand has now set her eyes on an inspiring show at the Rio Olympics. Srabani has qualified for Women’s 200m event.

“I am honoured to qualify for Olympics at the age of 20 and I hope to gain from the experience to do well in the 2018 Commonwealth Games and Asian Games,” Dutee added.
