RIO DE JANEIRO: Indian gymnast Dipa Karmakar scripted history+ as she became the first Indian to make the cut for the individual vault finals+ in her debut Olympic Games after finishing 8th in the qualifying round here.
The Tripura-girl, who is the country's first woman gymnast to qualify for the Olympics, managed to perform her much-appreciated ' Produnova+ ' vault cleanly to secure 14.850 points after two attempts.
It will be very difficult for Dipa to get a medal. But she has already created the history.

Girls are doing better than Guys.... and many (e.g. Haryana/Bihar) still want guys to be born in their families...
well done deepa. we are proud of you. may god be with you
If Modi Government is unable to produce 12 Medals in the Olympics than Modi should resign. All this frenzy about Hindu Nationalism is about just Gau Mata then.
Even without a podium standing this girl deserves a hero''s welcome !
India Medal Tally should double from 2012. In 2012 We had 6 Medals which was double of 2008 Count.
Yeah yeah yeah yeah.... Best of luck n keep up the tempo, even if you dont get a medal, you have already inspired millions of Indians that gymnastics is also achievable, and any medal in olympics gymnastics event after rio 2016 will be dedicated to you only....
Dipa, millions of Indians pray to the God that you return victorious from Rio.
Had this brilliant girl been picked up 6yrs earlier to train, she would have been tops. But our scout regime for sports talent is full of holes
Very good effort. Hope she wins a medal
Indian daughter,ALL THE BEST.

Congratulations Deepa! Keep the flag flying!
Sad that other competitors have not done well but it is not for lack of effort on their
You are the hope of 120 crore Indians. All are praying for you. Yes, you can make it
