The Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik  announced a cash incentive of Rs 5 lakh each to sprinters Dutee Chand and Jauna Murmu. The Chief Minister’s announcement came ahead of Dutee and Jauna’s tour to London to participate in the World Athletics Championships which will begin on August 4 and end on August 13. Patnaik wished the duo good luck and success at the World Athletics Championships. Dutee and Jauna are the two athletes who have found a place in 25-member Indian athletics contingent. While Jauna had qualified to take part in the 400 metre women and 4X400 relay events, Dutee, who had narrowly missed the women’s 100m qualification mark of 11.26 seconds, got a wild card entry since the necessary number of 56 athletes for women’s 100m event could not be fulfilled for the World Championships.  The Odisha Sun Times Bureau : 30th.
