Are Several Controversies Of Dutee Chand Ruining Her Running Career?
One of the fastest athletes in the Indian circuit, Dutee Chand found herself amid yet another controversy after opting to sell her BMW worth Rs 30 Lakh. Chand wanted to sell off the car in order to arrange funds for the training. The Department of Sports and Youth Services, Odisha, said it had given a Rs 3 crore incentive for her Asian Games 2018 performance, Rs 30 lakh for training and financial support between 2015-2019 and Rs 50 lakhs to train for the Tokyo Olympics. The Odisha Mining Corporation also gave her a Group-A level officer’s salary of Rs 84,604 per month. They also provided her with Rs 29 lakh for training and financial assistance. Some people close to her say “it’s her habit” to create controversies. Dutee, on the other hand, has expressed being deeply hurt that the government released an official statement about the amount of money that went in her preparations. But, above all, the big question is: Can she qualify for the Tokyo Olympics in the 100 m with a time of 11.15 seconds?
