Dipa Karmakar, first Indian woman gymnast to qualify for Rio Olympics 2016

Dipa Karmakar became the first Indian woman gymnast ever to secure an Olympic berth by garnering a total score of 52.698 points.  Her first vault, the much difficult Produnova, gave Dipa 15.066 points, the highest among the 14 competitors.  But a poor show in the uneven bars took her points down as she collected 11.700, the second worse among the 14 participants. The Tripura girl secured 13.366 and 12.566 points in beam and floor exercises to be assured of the berth. 
Dipa had created history by becoming the first woman gymnast to win a medal a bronze in the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow in 2014.  She then became the first Indian woman gymnast to feature in the finals of World Championships in November last.
