Gymanstics like athletics is another mainstay of the Olympics. Russia and United States have dominated the medals, more recently China is playing catch up. 16 Indian gymnasts, all men, have represented the country at Olympics. No medals yet for India.  This year at Rio, India is sending its first woman gymnast.

Dipa Karmakar will be participating in Gymnastics representing India in 5 events mainly Women’s Vault, Women’s Floor exercise and Women’s Beam. Interesting bio of Dipa’s career by HT Mint.
