India’s Women debutant Gymnast Dipa Karmakar created history by becoming the first Indian Olympian by qualifying for the individual vaults finals after completing the 8th round of the qualifying match at the Rio de Janeiro Olympics 2016.
Tripura’s first women gymnast from the country who has qualified for the Rio has managed in performing at the Produnova vault that is much appreciated cleanly securing 14.850 points after 2 attempts. She completed in 8th after the terrific effort made by the Canadian Shallon Olsen in securing 14.950 rearraging the overall standings. But, Karmakar’s points are just enough to secure her place at the finals which are going to be held on 14th of August as the top 8 gymnasts have made their cut at the medal round. But, she has earned that points in difficulty and she has to work more to win medal for the country in the finals. Let us hope she would give tough competition for other gymnasts and win in the finals. More Olympic 2016 updates are given in this site. So, do follow them.
