Thanks to Dipa for further bolstering the sports culture in India. Credit to people like her because of whom gymnastics would be given its due respect & also allow individuals to think of this as one of their career option if they have the talent.
Media coverage helps us to go beyond cricket & understand/feel that other sports can be equally interesting & evoke the pride factor. This will further help get the much required sponsorship be it from government or brands which in-turn would help build good infrastructure for training & boost the concerned athletes’ confidence. All seems to be moving in the right direction. Thanks to all Olympics participants for making the eco-system more conducive for the next generation
we agree with Dipa’s quote “People used to think gymnastics is circus, but that will change I hope”. No harm in the analogy as circus participants are equally talented & they entertain audience using their sharp skills
Snapshot of her achievements
