PU Chitra won the gold medal in the 1500-metre women’s final at the 2019 Asian Athletics Championships being held at Doha in Qatar on Wednesday, the final day of the event. She recorded a time of 4 minutes and 14.56 seconds to give India a third gold medal of the meet.

There was high drama in the 4×400 women’s relay final, where India (Prachi, MR Poovamma, Saritaben Gayakwad & VK Vismaya) finished with a silver medal, just missing out on the gold to Bahrain. After MR Poovamma conceded a sizable lead at the end of the second lap, Saritaben and Vismaya did well to get the Indian team in the lead.
