Biography

Dutee CHAND

Dutee Chand has been blazing a trail for Indian athletics ever since she burst onto the scene a few, short years ago.

The sprinter, the first openly gay athlete from India, scripted history in 2019 at the World Universiade in Naples when she became the first Indian to clinch gold in a 100m event at a global meet.

She also holds the national record in the women’s 100m and is only the fifth Indian to participate in the women's 100 metres at the Olympics when she qualified for the 2016 Rio Games.

Hailing from Odisha, Dutee Chand comes from a weavers’ family and was inspired to take up running because of sister Saraswati.
