India's Dutee Chand grabbed her second silver medal at the 18th Asian Games after finishing second in the women's 200 metres race on Wednesday.

Dutee, who also won silver medal in the 100m, clocked 23.20 seconds to finish behind Bahrain’s Edidiong Odiong, who claimed the gold medal in 22.96 seconds.

Talking to the media after her performance, Dutee dedicated the medal to the nation, saying that the fatigue from the semi-finals was the reason she was not able push herself to the fullest and missed out on the gold.

The medal I won today is dedicated to the nation. I gave my all in the 200m semis and so the body had not recovered completely, which is why I couldn’t push myself completely in the last 10 meters, so I missed out on a gold. I’ll try my best to win a gold in the next competition.
