Odisha government nominates Dutee Chand for Khel Ratna

Odisha government on Tuesday nominated ace sprinter Dutee Chand for the Rajiv Gandhi Khel Ratna Award, the country’s highest sporting honour.
Apart from Dutee, the Odisha government also sent five other recommendations to the sports ministry, said an official here.
“I’m thankful to Odisha chief minister Naveen Patnaik for nominating my name for the Khel Ratna Award. May your blessing always be upon me,” Dutee said on Twitter. The Indian sprint ace broke her own 100m national record, clocking 11.7 seconds at the Indian Grand Prix 4 in Patiala last week to miss the automatic Olympic qualification time by 0.02 seconds.        source url :- https://economictimes.indiatimes.com/news/sports/odisha-government-nominates-dutee-chand-for-khel-ratna/articleshow/83954740.cms
