If you are hooked to the Olympics this year then Dipa Karmakar must be one such name that gives you adrenaline rush. The 23-year-old is India’s first gymnast to be taking part in the Olympics. In her first Olympics appearance, Dipa made the cut into the finals of the artistic gymnastics’ vault event.
Dipa is celebrating her 23rd birthday today but she won’t be able to get connected with her friends and other relatives as her coach has put her in a ‘house arrest’. Her coach Bisheshwar Nandi said, “I’ve removed the SIM card from her mobile. Only parents are allowed to talk to her. I don’t want her to lose focus.”
Nevertheless, after her brilliant performance in the Olympics, some very popular names in film industry as well as from the sporting world logged on to twitter to wish the wonder girl for making India proud.
Here is a twitter report on the same:
