RIO 2016 showed up with lots of girl power.
People with the unknown faces got the name echoing all over the world.
First, Dipa pushed the medal aside from our minds and took us along with her as she went racing towards her vault.
Dipa Karmakar recieved her nation’s administration after falling short of a gymnastics medal by just 0.15 points.
Karmakar was the first Indian female gymnast at the Olympics and finished fourth at the women’s vault gymnastics event.
It is learnt that Dipa Karmakar’s name was not on the list but her Olympics performance not only vaulted her in the reckoning for this year’s Rajiv Gandhi Khel Ratna but may also fetch her coach Biseshwar Nandi a Dronacharya award.
HER DREAM IS TO INSPIRE THE NEXT 10-15 GENERATION.
Second,Sakshi grabbed the opponent like a tigress and bronze was in her hand.
The wrestling victory may be India’s first medal of the 2016 Olympics, but it is not the first heartwarming story for the country.
“I never knew what Olympics was, I wanted to become a sportsperson to travel in an aeroplane. If you can represent India, you can board a plane, and fly,”
“I never thought I would become the first woman wrestler from India to bag an Olympic medal in wrestling,”-sakshi malik.
HER DREAM WAS TO TRAVEL THE WORLD AND WHAT SHE GOT …….
HER DREAM BY AIR INDIA.
India’s flag carrier airline Air India has now offered her two business-class return tickets for Malik and her chosen companion to any destination across the globe in the airline’s existing network. The tickets are valid for the next one year.
Third,which last for the day but not least, Pusarla Venkata Sindhu where she unfold the action of RIO.
It was a historic occasion for India that turned out to be a heartbreaking moment as a gold medal narrowly slipped from PV Sindhu’s hand.
But she becomes the first Indian woman to win a silver medal and that is a momentous feat considering how the odds were just not in her favour!
“What do I say?” Sindhu beamed, Olympic silver medal hanging around her neck adding to her overall allure. “I’m on Cloud Nine. It’s been a surprisingly great week. I played well, I had some great matches and now, I am OLYMPIC SILVER MEDALIST.”
SHE MADE INDIA DREAM GOLD AGAIN.
Before Rio, Dipa didn’t talk much, Sakshi talked non-stop and Sindhu was a good distance away from the perfect soundbite.
Yet, when the arc-light of competition turned on them, each of them put on their uniforms and proved that they were the only thing they needed to be at an Olympic Games: ready.
‘beti bachao, medal pao’
