Dipa Karmakar to return BMW, gifted by Sachin Tendulkar
Dipa Karmakar has returned her new BMW car which was gifted by Sachin Tendulkar after her magnificent performance in Rio Olympics 2016. An Indian website claimed that she will not able to maintain the BMW.
It was known that the maintenance costs for this luxury vehicle are very high and it is believed that Dipa does not want to bear the cost of it. Further, as she hails from Agartala, she believes that it is not a car that can be used by her or her family members as it would prove to be a nuisance on the rather small roads.
Dipa Karmakar took fourth place at the Rio Olympics in August 2016 to become a name in India. Before the 23-year-old represented India in the Olympics, there had never been another woman who had done so, making her mere presence at the event an incredible achievement.
The fact that she very nearly claimed a bronze medal, falling agonisingly short on the eve of India’s Independence Day, endeared her to the masses and she became an instant hit overnight.
India entered the Olympics with hopes of registering her highest ever medal tally, going one step further than the six medals earned in London four years ago, but ended up, rather disappointingly, with only two medals. Both the medals were secured by Indian women, PV Sindhu won the Silver in Badminton Singles, while Sakshi Malik won bronze for her effort in Wrestling.
