Of all the competitions Indian gymnasts have competed in over the past two decades, the Commonwealth Games have achieved the most success.
India Has So Far Won Three Medals in Gymnastics At the Commonwealth Games
In the 2010 season, Ashish Kumar won silver and bronze medals in vault and floor respectively, while Dipa Karmakar won bronze in vault in Glasgow’s 2014 seasons.
In Birmingham, India’s hopes are on Pranati Nayak, who recently won a bronze medal at the Asian Championships. Although competing in the Commonwealth Games is tougher than the Asian Championships, Pranati was quite excited about her chances on Tuesday.
The 26-year-old from West Bengal has been in good form and is focusing on vaults, which is the country’s best option in Birmingham. She had a disappointing performance in the Olympics and is now hoping to overcome that disappointment in Birmingham.
“I Have Prepared Well and I Am Looking Forward To A Medal,” Pranati Said At An Event of the Indian High Commission in Britain
She added, “Though gymnastics is for young players, I have done well in recent years and plan to continue till the 2024 Paris Olympics. I am 27 now and recently won a bronze medal at the Asian Championships. has won.”
In order to do well at the international level, players need a signature move that will fetch them high scores. Pranati decides to take a risk in Vault’s crucial endeavours, just like Deepa did with Produnova at the Rio Olympics.
Veteran coach Bishweshwar Nandi took charge of the gymnastics team in place of Rohit Jaiswal after female gymnast Aruna Budda alleged that she was videographed without her consent. Pranati said the athletes are confident of doing well.
