Dipa Karmakar, the 23-year-old from Tripura, pushed the medal aside from our minds and took us along with her as she went racing towards her vault. She took up gymnastics at a very early age. Despite having flat feet – with her monumental effort and determination – She overcame her physical disabilities and went on to represent India at the biggest stage of all – The Olympics. Dipa mastered the Produnova – the vault of death – which most gymnast don’t even attempt, hoping to clinch a medal at the Olympics. She may have missed a medal, but it’s commendable she stood 4th in the world, putting India on the gymnastics map!
