Odisha sprinter, barred from taking part in any competition after failing IAAF’s controversial new hyperandrogenism test, got a partial reprieve in December last year when the Court of Arbitration for Sports (CAS), where she had filed an appeal in September last year, allowed her to participate in national events in its provisional ruling.

After the partial relief, the teen sprinter breached the meet record in women’s 100m event clocking 11.76 sec at the recently concluded National Games.

A biopic based on the life and times of Odisha’s sprint queen Dutee Chand will hit drawing rooms this April.  A crew of American TV channel Home Box Office Inc. (HBO) was engaged in shootings in Kerala at the just concluded 35th National Games to capture her sporting life, which has been marred with controversy.
