Dipa Karmakar failed. Or did she? The lass who has inspired a whole nation where Cricket was the only sport considered worth the time and money, she cannot fail, she can just fall short of a winning stroke. And that she did. Dipa Karmakr, the athlete who united class and mass alike.
India’s first lady gymnast, Dipa fell short of winning the bronze, just by the slightest of margins, but has already set her target on the next Olympics of 2020.
Such is this beautiful soul, that she has won support from many celebrities as well. Let’s take a look as to who said what to encourage this talented gymnast.
