A Champion Vaulter From India
India is not known for producing stiff gymnastics competition. But Dipa Karmakar’s amazing vault scored 15.11 at the 2014 Commonwealth Games. She won the bronze medal in vaulting – something never done before by an Indian gymnast.
The vault is called the Produnova. It is so rare that the commentators in the video said they had not seen one correctly done for 20 years! It has a difficulty level of 7.00.
Let’s hope that India can fund superb training for their national gymnasts. I’d love to see this young woman compete at the Olympics next year.
