Khelo India University Games: Priya Mohan beat Dutee Chand to win 200m gold, Jain University still on top of table

Despite the win, Priya Mohan was unhappy that rain had wreaked havoc on her plans to set a personal best.

While the 2018 Asian Games silver medallist Chand raced out of the blocks to take the lead into the first 100m, the 19-year-old Mohan ran a brilliant bend to overtake and cement her stature in the event.   -  Murali Kumar K

Priya Mohan outclassed Dutee Chand to clinch the women’s 200m event in the Khelo India University Games here on Sunday. Jain University’s Priya (23.9s) turned on the jets at the bend to comfortably defeat the more experienced Dutee (24.02s).

Priya completed the double at the championship, having secured the 400m gold on a rain-drenched track on Sunday night.

"The turnaround time after the 100m last night was quite less. My recovery was not ideal, so my timing in the 200m was not very good," Priya stated.

"My race strategy was to stay with her (Dutee) in the first 80m. I have the stronger finish, which worked in my favour," Priya added.
