India’s lone Gymnastic medal hope at ongoing Rio games in Rio de Janerio, Dipa Karmakar is extremely excited to give her final shot on August 14.
While speaking with the media on Thursday, Dipa said ” I am excited, not nervous. Efforts will be to give my best.”
An artistic gymnast who hails from the Northeastern state of Tripura, Dipa sent a message to all his fans through media.
She said “”please pray for me that the day is in my favour on 14th Aug final.”
“We have all facilities here, training & practice is going on well,” Dipa added.
Dipa scripted history as she became the first Indian to make the cut for the individual vault finals in her debut Olympic Games after finishing 8th in the qualifying round in Rio.
Dipa is only the second Indian gymnast to have won a Commonwealth Games medal (2014). A five-time national overall individual champion between 2010-2014, Karmakar was given the Arjuna Award last year.
