AGARTALA, Nov 24 (TIWN): IDBI Bank & Directorate for Youths & Sports Affairs organized a felicitation programme for Dipa Karmakar on Thursday at DDSC.

Dipa earlier also was felicitated by various depts and organizations.

It’s worthy to mention here that Dipa Karmkar was gifted with Marcedes car from India’s sports icon Sachin Tendulkar, Rs. 50 lakhs from Telenagana Govt, and also helped financially by MP and Central Govt------- but the Tripura Govt. yet to gift anything to Dipa after her achievements.

Gymnast Dipa Karmakar, missed the medal in the Rio Olympics by just with the gap of few points, was  felicitated by the Tripura government   on August 22.

Dipa is the first Indian gymnast to make the cut in the Olympics in 52 years. She is a specialist at ‘Prudonova’ vault and would also attempt the Tsukahara 720 vault. She is the fifth woman gymnast in the world to be skilled in the Prudonova.

Although the nation was expecting gold from Dipa but unfortunately Dipa dropped to fourth position and narrowly missed gold in the Rio Olympic.

Dipa Karmakar returned empty handed from the Vaults final at the Gymnastics event of Rio 2016 Olympics after she finished the event at fourth position. Karmakar scored 15.066 points in the final but clinching upto 4th position and representing India at such big platform is highly appreciable.

However, Dipa and her coach are highly satisfied as she made it upto Rio and now her target is Tokyo 2020.

Other states whereas  gifting Dipa cash rewards, which may help her in her  career, Tripura Govt. just busy in broadcasting own party with Dipa advertisement sending her with empty hands of flower-felicitation.
