Dipa Karmakar, the first Indian female gymnast ever and the first to represent India at the Olympics in 52 years! Dipa’s physical therapist was originally denied permission to travel with her, to Rio, and then rushed when she qualified for the finals. Though she missed a bronze by a whisker, she joined the league of 5 extraordinary women in the Olympic games to nail the leg breaking Produnova Vault.
