India’s fastest woman puts her car on sale to fund for Olympic training

Dutee Chand, the Asian Games Silver medalist wants to sell her BMW to continue training for Olympics. Dutee Chand had bought a BMW 3 series in 2018.

Due to lack of sponsorship and no competitions going on in the wake of COVID-19, Dutee feels it’s the only way of making money for herself. She does get Rs 60,000 per month as salary from Odisha mining corporation and also has KIIT university as a sponsor but all the money from sponsors was spent keeping in mind the earlier dates of Olympics.

“It was a difficult decision for me to put up that post. Had there been an Olympics, I would have been all set, but, as the Games have been postponed by a year, I am unable to support myself.” Dutee told rediff.com on Monday.
