Simone Biles Says Produnova Should Be Re-named As ‘Karmakar’ Vault
Dipa Karmakar stood 4th in the finals of Women’s Vault in Rio Olympics.
India’s new wonder-girl, gymnast Dipa Karmakar has not only impressed the country with her performance in recently concluded Rio Olympics but also her competitors from the event she participated in.
Simone Biles, the American who won the gold medal in the Women’s vault at Rio has said that ‘Produnova Vault’ should be renamed as the ‘Karmakar Vault’.
Dipa Karmakar, is only the fifth woman ever to complete the dangerous ‘Produnova Vault’ which she herself claims as the easiest among all.
Simone Biles had reportedly told Dipa that the ‘Vault of Death’ should rather be renamed as the ‘Karmakar’ vault and she (Simone) would never try to attempt the fatal vault in future.
Despite keeping the Produnova Vault in her favorite list, the 23-year-old from Tripura isn’t ruling out attaining perfection in the vault ahead of 2020 Olympics in Tokyo, according to a Times Of India report.
