Dipa Karmakar was the first ever Indian gymnast to represent the nation at the Olympics and she made the nation proud with some unbelievable performances at the Olympic games this year.
The 23-year old has not only managed to reach the vault finals but has given tough competition to opponents in the final. She missed the medal by just a whisker as he finished fourth in the finals. However, India were really proud of her achievement on the midnight of Independence day. She, in fact, managed to do the Produnova yet again in the finals with utmost perfection.
Here is how few celebrities reacted just after her inspiring performance.
