  |   India News / Sports

After narrowly missing the Bronze medal🏅 in the Women's vault, it is back to training for Dipa Karmakar⭐, India's first Olympic gymnast. In her recent interview🎙, Dipa spoke about her experiences at Rio and aspirations. 🔈"I want to inspire the next generation so that in 10 to 15 years, India can send a full gymnastics team to an Olympics and not just one athlete.(Five-times Olympic champion) Nellie Kim told me that in 10 years' time, Indian gymnastics will be at the same level as the Chinese team, "said Dipa. The 23-year-old who hails from Tripura prepared for the Olympics with 'out-of-date' equipment😮 made from a pile of crash mats and discarded parts of a second-hand scooter🏍. 🔈"Even now we still do not have the Olympic standard balance beam and uneven bars in India," explained Karmakar. She expressed hope that the required equipment would be imported into India soon. Karmakar is happy😃 that she has been able to spread the popularity of the sport in a cricket🏏 crazy nation. Coached by Bishweshwar Nandi👔, the youngster hopes to invent a skill that will be named after her. Karmakar is overwhelmed☺ by the adulation back home and is disappointed about going home empty handed. 🔈"There has been a lot of sadness and pain over the last four days. If I had won a medal, then I would have been in a rush to go back. My goal is that I can take a medal back for India at the next Olympics. I will try my hardest to achieve that, " said Dipa Karmakar.
