バイオグラフィー

A two-time Olympian and 100m national record holder, Dutee Chand has been a trail blazer for Indian athletics ever since she burst onto the scene in 2013.

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.

Dutee Chand 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.

But she faced hardships most of her life; whether it was the humble upbringing or the hyperandrogenism controversy or the repercussions of coming out gay in a conservative society.

"From a girl who used to run barefoot around a lake to becoming a sportsperson recognized across the world, it’s been a long, hard journey," Dutee says. "People now see me for my sport, for my hard work and for what I stand."
