: Priya Mohan outclassed Dutee Chand to clinch the women’s 200m event in the Khelo India University Games here on Sunday. Jain University’s Priya (23.9s) turned on the jets at the bend to comfortably defeat the more experienced Dutee (24.02s)

Priya completed the double at the championship, having secured the 400m gold on a rain-drenched track on Sunday night. "The turnaround time after the 100m last night was quite less. My recovery was not ideal, so my timing in the 200m was not very good," Priya stated.

"My race strategy was to stay with her (Dutee) in the first 80m. I have the stronger finish, which worked in my favour," Priya added.
