Rio Olympic wonder girl, Dipa Karmakar left the entire country gaping at her talent and skill with a gold at FIG Artistic Gymnastics World Challenge Cup in Mersin, Turkey. After going through a period of tough injury and sustaining it two years later Dipa has come back and made the entire country proud yet again.
The 24-year-old from Tripura topped the qualification before she clinched the gold with a score of 14.150. Even though she missed out on a medal in the 2016 Rio Olympics, she never gave up and instead came back strong. Rifda Irfanaluthfi of Indonesia clinched the silver, while Goksu Uctas Sanli of Turkey took home the bronze medal.
The entire country erupted at her success and took it to Twitter to give her compliments.
She continues to dazzle, she continues to shine & she has established India on the world stage. Congratulations @DipaKarmakar for winning the gold medal in the vault event of FIG Artistic Gymnastics World Challenge Cup at Mersin in Turkey. pic.twitter.com/YhsGce9DxU
