Guwahati: No gaming enthusiast has been spared from the craze for PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, popularly known as PUBG. Gamers have given up on food and sleep to win the game, teaming up with people from random corners of the world. However, the recent, and one of the most innovative take on the game, has been given by ‘Dhing Express’ Hima Das.
In a video that has now gone viral, the athlete from Assam, who is on a gold medal winning spree at the moment, is seen playing PUBG, albeit in real life. Das is seen enjoying the ‘game’ along with two other girls, presumably somewhere in Europe.
The video starts with the two other players holding pieces of wood as ‘weapons’. When one player is injured by the other, Das makes her entry with a slow-motion run, yielding another wooden ‘gun’.
She and the injured player get up and swiftly kill the enemy player, marking the end of the live re-enactment of the viral game.
The 19-year-old Assamese sprinter’s latest gold medal came in Prague on July 20, where she clocked the season’s best timing of 52.09 seconds, to win the the 400m race at the Nove Mesto and Metuji Grand Prix. Her personal best is 50.79 seconds, which she recorded at the 2018 Asian Games.
Earlier, she won a gold at a 200 m race in Tabor Athletic Meet on Wednesday. Prior to Tabor Athletic Meet, she won three gold at different events including a gold medal in Klado Athletic Meet, Kunto Athletics Meet, and Poznan Athletics Grand Prix.
