Now that is Dipa Karamkar, the Only Indian Gymnast who reached Olympic levels, and has come 4th at Rio! At her very first try! That is Some talent. This makes her another Darling of India. Some Images below, all from the internet.
A Kiss to You, too, my Dear.
Okay, all that text also came attached, Clever fellows. …But I call this photograph: ‘Neck Breaking.’ Incidentally, Risks like these, for Indian Gymnasts at Horribly Unequipped stadiums, and for Hockey players, having the serious risk of Injury, is what turns people to ‘safer’ Cricket.
How many of Us would like to Try this?
Let me get back to the Headline. What’s so special about her saying this? …’One’ year, my Dear Folks, One Year. …Do We think the Other Gymnasts are practising like that, for 365 DAYS before the Olympics?
It becomes Clear that a Person with Such Talent would require a HUGE amount of support before She/He would allocate these Years of Training to their Sport(s). The Special Diet that would be required. The Special Equipment, including Adequate and World Class Safety ones.
It is also clear that Dipa has indirectly said that She cannot manage all these for the whole 4 years before the next Olympics.
Speaking Only of Facilities, and Money that is needed for this, if We just REAM people like these ministers who Regularly go for Jaunts at the Tax-payers’ expense, things would Improve greatly indeed.
These are some Reaming tools.
Here is one such minister.
Haryana Minister Anil Vij splashes ONE CRORE rupees to go to Rio; Skips Main event, Absent from key events.
Incidentally, just Guess whose name crops up MOST in search for Jaunts? One hint. his name has Four letters.
But Why should they give up their jolly life? When there is Nobody to question them. Not Enough, anyway.
Let Us take Our heads out of the Proverbial Sand.
