Kazakahstan ,

"Sprint Queen" Dutee Chand clocked 11.30 seconds in Women's 100 metres to seal her place in the upcoming Summer Olympics to be held in Rio de Janeiro.   With her latest timing, the 20-year-old athlete from Jajpur district in Odisha has finally succeeded in clearing the current Olympic qualification mark of 11.32 by a couple of hundredths of a second. 
Dutee had missed the same by a whisker with a timing of 11.33 seconds at the Federation Cup National Athletics meet held in New Delhi in the last week of April.
