World champion sprinter Hima Das has signed a multi-crore two-year deal with sports management firm Infinity Optimal Solutions (IOS), the company said on Thursday.
Hima, who scripted history by winning a gold medal in the women's 400m event at the IAAF World U-20 Championships recently, joins the likes of boxing stars MC Mary Kom and Vijender Singh, rising paddler Manika Batra and world champion weightlifter Mirabai Chanu in signing up with IOS.
The company did not specify the exact monetary details of the deal.
Hima Das had clocked 51.46 seconds in the finals to become the first Indian athlete to win a world championship gold across all age groups.
"I am fortunate to be on board with one of India's top sports management group. I was looking for a professional sports management group to manage my commercial interests, as I only want to focus on my training and championships," Hima said in a release.
