Indian Artistic Gymnastics Team for Jakarta Asian Games 2018

 

As India gears up for the 18th Asian Games which will be held at Jakarta and Palembang in Indonesia starting from the 18th of August, 2018, hopes of a medal from the Indian gymnasts are high.

Following a two day open trial held at the Indira Gandhi Stadium in Delhi on the 25th and 26th of June, two five member teams for men and women were chosen. Dipa Karmakar returned to competition for the first time after the Olympics following her surgery. A strong performance in the allround left her in first place followed by Pranati Das and 2018 Melbourne World Cup bronze medalist Aruna Reddy. Mandira Chowdhury came in fourth and Commonwealth Games Vault finalist Pranati Nayak grabbed the 5th spot.

For the men, Commonwealth Games Rings Finalist, Rakesh Patra stood first in the trials. He was followed by Yogeshwar Singh, Gaurav Kumar, 2010 Asian Games and Commonwealth Games medalist Ashish Kumar and in 5th place, Siddharth Verma.

As they continue to prepare for the Games in Delhi, we wish them the very best and support them in their quest to bring India some medals from the Games.
