Taking part in her fifth race this week, Dutee clocked 23.30 seconds in the race to finish fifth. While she has a personal best of 23.00 seconds, this timing was a bit slower than what she had produced during her bronze winning performance at the Asian Championships last April.

Following this impressive finish in the 200m, Dutee competed in the women’s 4x100m relay. Results weren’t impressive and the team finished sixth in heat 1 and had to settle for a overall 13th place finish. Meanwhile, the men’s team in their relay finished 11th overall.
