Published on 3 July, 2016 at 5:18 pm By

Dipa Karmakar who is set to become India’s first gymnast to take part in the Olympics is planning to attempt the most dangerous vault for success.

‘Produnova’ or the ‘handspring double front vault’ is known to be life-threatening and has till date only been attempted by few gymnasts across the world.

 

Difficulty level of ‘Produnova’ is valued at 7.0 and has been named after retired Russian gymnast Elena Produnova, who was a master of this move.

Karmakar’s skill with Produnova first came to light when she successfully completed the vault at Glasgow Commonwealth Games.
