Usha-the Dawn a nation hoped for; Dipa-the Light that hope holds.

In 1984, the hopes of a nation to win an Individual Gold at Olympics soared on the wings of the Payyoli Express, PT Usha. Though she missed a bronze by a hundredth of a second, PT Usha has spurred the hopes of a generation of athletes, notably women.

In the current squad representing India, Dipa Karmarkar has been one of the Indians who has progressed to the finals of their events. While the going is sure to be tough enough to make even a Bronze an achievement, Indians  would be looking on with bated breathe as Dipa vaults…. Literally risking Lifeand Serious Injury for a medal at the Olympics. Will the dangerous Produnova routine payoff for Dipa? The coming hours will throw light..

Jai Dipa, Jai Hind !!
