Dipa Karmakar not ready for CWG: Coach

Dipa Karmakar not ready for CWG: Coach

The 24-year-old is one of the only five women who have successfully landed the "Produnova", which is regarded as the most hard vault now performed in women's gymnastics. She was the first female gymnast in Indian history to do so.

But the price to pay for all that has been heavy.

Karmakar injured her knee previous year during practice and has since been out of action. Bisheshwar told ANI, "Deepa Karmakar's performance is not up to the mark, that's why as a coach I have decided not to send her for the Commonwealth Games".

India's star gymnast Dipa Karmakar has been ruled of the upcoming Commonwealth Games due to a knee injury she picked up a year ago, her coach Bisweshwar Nandi informed on Tuesday. "The movements in gymnastics require constant flexing and twisting of knees and we don't want to rush her into action", Nandi said. "Dipa is fit physically, but it has been just one-and-half-months that she has started her practice". She also finished fourth at the 2014 edition of the Asian Games in Incheon, South Korea, besides securing another historic fourth-place result at the 2016 Rio Olympics, which earned her the Khel Ratna award, the country's highest honour for sportspersons. She is yet to recover fully. "So we felt that the Commonwealth Games was a bit too soon for her". Her success so far has been built on the back of the Produnova - the move they call the vault of death. Attempting that with a surgically repaired knee might not be everybody's cup of tea. We are focusing on specific exercises to strengthen her ankle and knees.

Dipa had said right after her Rio performance that her long-term goal was a medal at the Tokyo Olympics in 2020 and Nandi reiterated that still was the case. But Dipa has added a number of short-term objectives to her to-do list.

Dipa Karmakar will not be participating in the Commonwealth Games 2018.
