There’s no pressure: Dipa Karmakar on participation in two World Cups

Ace gymnast Dipa Karmakar is set to represent India in the upcoming World Cups at Baku, Azerbaijan and Doha, Qatar. She says for her, every competition is very tough but she doesn’t feel pressurised. Ahead of the competitions that will start from March 14, Karmakar told IANS in a telephonic interview: “Training has been going well. I was training in Agartala (Tripura – her home state) all this while. I will try my best to do well there.”

For her, all the championships are the same. “We are always on the field. Whether it is Olympics or any world championship, all are the same. For us, every competition is very tough,” said the young sports star. But she maintains that there is no pressure.
