Dipa Karmakar ruled out of Commonwealth Games

|

New Delhi: India’s top gymnast Dipa Karmakar has been forced out of the upcoming Commonwealth Games owing to the career-threatening knee injury she picked up last year, her coach Bisweshwar Nandi said today.

“She is not yet ready for a tournament like the Commonwealth Games. So, the target is to make her fully ready for the Asian Games (18 August-2 September ),” Nandi said.

Karmakar, the first Indian female to compete in the Olympics where she finished a historic fourth in the women’s vault at the 2016 Rio Games, opted out of the CWG trials taking place at the Stadium here.

The Gold Coast Games take place from 4-15 April.

“She is fit but needs more to be -ready. I would not call it a setback and she has taken it very sportingly,” added the coach.

The 24-year-old had undergone an Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) surgery in April last year and is continuing to undergo a lengthy rehabilitation process. She has, however, started training, according to Nandi.

The nature of the injury, which she picked up during a training camp, has not allowed her to compete since the Rio Olympics.

She had scripted at the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, becoming the first Indian woman to win a medal in gymnastics in the mega-event.

Karmakar had also secured a in the 2015 Asian Championships.
