The photo 4 years old, from Asian Games 2014. In photo, the three winners are Priyanka Panwar, Tintu Luka, Mandeep Kaur while this year Hima Das, MR Poovamma, Saritaben Gayakwad and Vismaya Koroth won.

Year 2014 can be read at the bottom right printing on their T-Shirt.

This photo was published in Times of India in Year 2014

Times of India reported in 2014
INCHEON: India continued their stranglehold in women’s 4x400m relay event in the Asian Games as its quartet ran a brilliant race to win the gold for the fourth time on the trot in Games record time in the 17th edition on Thursday.
The quartet of Priyanka Panwar, Tintu Luka, Mandeep Kaur and M R Poovamma won an easy race in 3:28.68 to improve upon the earlier Games record of 3:29.02 which was also in the name of the gold-winning Indian team in 2010. This was the second gold for India from athletics after Seema Punia bagged the yellow metal in women’s discus throw.

Japan won the silver in 3:30.80 while China bagged the bronze in 3:32.02.

The first lapper, Panwar was, however, lagging behind her Japanese counterpart but Luka, who won a silver in 800m race, ran a brilliant race to recover the loss ground for India.

This is the original photo tweeted by President’s Handle –

“Congratulations to our Golden Girls – Hima Das, MR Poovamma, Saritaben Gayakwad and Vismaya Koroth for winning the Gold in the Women’s 4x400m Relay at the @asiangames2018. Daughters of India continue to make us all proud! #PresidentKovind”

After deleting the wrong one, All India Mahila Congress later posted the photos of the Indian women Hockey Team in the tweet
