After doping ban, & Asian Games fiasco, Dipa Karmakar proves her worth at Senior Nationals

Dipa Karmakar topped the all-around performance at the Senior Nationals, where she is competing after eight years.

Olympian Dipa Karmakar is on a comeback trail as she topped the all-around performance at the Artistic Gymnastics Senior National Championships on Wednesday. She secured a total of 49.55 points, way clear of the other competitors. Dipa, who had come tantalisingly close to bagging a medal at the Rio Olympics in 2016, recorded 13.40 on vault, 10.65 on uneven bars, 13.10 on balance beam and 12.40 on floor exercise.

After her solid display, Dipa said, “I’m competing in Senior Nationals after eight years, I feel great about it, and I am really happy with my today’s performance. I’ll try to do well tomorrow as well, there will be competition on individual apparatus.”
