PUMA welcomes the fastest woman in India to the family!

August 13, 2019

PUMA is getting ready for the Olympic Games in Tokyo next year: Dutee Chand, India’s fastest woman, joined our great roster of Track and Field athletes!

At the age of only 23 years, Dutee is the 3rd woman from India to qualify for the women’s 100m at the Summer Olympic Games, which take place in July and August 2020.

She is also the first Indian athlete ever to win the 100m event at the Universiade, the largest multi-sport event in the world apart from the Olympic Games. She stunned the track and field world by clocking 11.32 seconds, which is close to her personal best of 11.24 seconds.

This is my very first exclusive brand association and I’m thrilled that it’s with a company that has worked with legendary athletes like Usain Bolt, the fastest man alive. It’s great to see PUMA encourage athletes across sporting fields and I’m humbled by their trust in me to represent the brand in India. This means a lot to me and I’m excited about my association with PUMA.

We are excited as well, because Dutee represents everything PUMA is as a brand. “Dutee’s success is a result of a sheer display of her exceptional athletic capabilities and power on the track,” said Abhishek Ganguly, PUMA India’s Managing Director. “This partnership further reinforces our commitment to the sports ecosystem in India and we believe she will have a big influence in shaping the future of Track and Field in the country.”

Dundee will be equipped with custom-made performance gear to support her never-ending effort to become faster, stronger, and better every single day.
