Indian government rushes Dipa Karmakar's Physiotherapist to Rio ahead of vault final: Rio Olympics Update

Indian government rushes Dipa Karmakar's Physiotherapist to Rio ahead of vault final:

The Sports Ministry had ignored Dipa Karmakar's request for a Physio to travel with her to Rio but the government rushed Physiotherapist Sajjad Mir to the Olympics days ahead of her vault final.

Ever since Dipa Karmakar qualified for the Olympics in April, she has been putting in all the hard work to make a mark at the biggest sporting spectacle in Rio. Her efforts and hard work bore fruit when she qualified for the vault final on the opening day of the 31st Summer Games.

It was only then that the India Sports Ministry realised the extent of her achievement as she became the first Indian gymnast to make it to an Olympics final. Dipa and her coach BS Nandi had requested that their Physio Sajjad Mir be allowed to accompany them to Rio.

But those requests fell on deaf ears and both Dipa and her coach had to leave for Rio without their physio.

It was only when she made it to the final of vault that the Ministry realised that she actually needed a physio urgently.

The officials began the necessary paperwork. Immediately after she qualified, Mir was asked to leave for Rio at very short notice.

Dipa, who turned 23 on Tuesday, will compete in the vault final on August 14 and thankfully, she will have her Physio to look after her following every energy-sapping training session.

Mir reached Rio on Tuesday evening but will be allowed to enter the Games Village, where Dipa and her coach are staying, through the daily pass as he is not an accredited official.

Ahead of the Rio Games, Dipa was training under the watchful eyes of Nandi without no distractions around. Nandi insisted that she be allowed to train without any disturbances and even in Rio he has put the Agartala girl under 'house arrest'.

She isn't allowed to take phone calls, except her parents, but Dipa isn't complaining. After all, this is what she has been training all these year, the biggest and the most important leap of her career.
