World-class javelin thrower Neeraj is not taking part in the IAAF World Athletics Championships as he has just started light training since undergoing an elbow surgery in May, while bright prospect, Hima, trained in Europe for nearly four months, winning some low-level races before pulling out due to a lower back injury after being named in the initial team
Hima Das has been suffering from a life-threatening injury and has been ruled out of the World Athletics Championships. She had been suffering for the past one year, but continued to take part in the various sporting events around the world with other team members, worsening her injury.
The Athletics Federation of India (AFI) had on September 9 named seven women, including Hima Das, for the 4x400m relay and 4x400m mixed relay races. But it is learnt that Hima's name was missing in the initial entry of Indian women athletes for the two relay races submitted by AFI.
The number of athletes announced after a meeting of AFI selection committee will, however, increase after the international body (IAAF) gives confirmation of the likes of World University 100m champion Dutee Chand, who did not meet the qualification mark but is within the required number of competitors for the event

With Sachin Tendulkar to the Prime Minister going ga-ga, Hima Das' recent gold medal-winning spree in Europe has taken social media by storm. The fact is the athlete herself knows where she stands vis-a-vis a world championship or medal in the 2020 Olympics.
Hima Das has won five races -- four in 200m and one in her pet 400m event -- in Poland and the Czech Republic since July 2
