Dipa Karmakar gets ready for the World Gymnastics Championships in Cairo

Gymnast Dipa Karmakar is set to compete in the World Gymnastics Championships in Cairo, Egypt from February 15-18. After a five-year hiatus, Ms. Karmakar is once again representing her country on the global stage. Despite a right leg injury, she remains determined to excel on the vaulting table, her sole event at the upcoming championships.

Ms. Karmakar, who gained fame at the Rio Olympics, is currently practicing in New Delhi for the world championships. Her coach, Vishveshwar Nandi, expressed confidence in her abilities but also expressed concern about her injury. He stated, “She has not fully recovered from the surgery on her right leg, but I have faith that she will bring honour to the country with her performance.”

Ms. Karmakar earlier shared her determination to bring success to her country and requested blessings and prayers from everyone. She faced a setback in her career when she was suspended for three years due to a doping controversy but has worked diligently to clear her name and prove herself at the world championships. Her goal is to proudly represent India at the championships in Egypt. The Tripura State Gymnastics Association and fellow gymnasts have also extended their best wishes to Ms. Karmakar as she prepares for this important competition.
