A legend, idol to millions, is still only 22. For Simone Biles, being the top medal-getter at the ‘Worlds’ is big, but not enormous. That would be her inimitable impress on the sport its­elf—unequalled perfection and immaculate mastery of the toughest routines. GOAT? Yeah, we’re talking Bradman here. In Tokyo, she’ll seal the deal.

Handspring 360 and Tsukuhara 720 are just names that go with the twists, turns, tumbles and landings in the sport with the lowest margin for errors. Then there is the Produnova, a fiendish routine containing a handspring and two somersaults. The only Indian to dare dream of it, then execute it in Rio in 2016, Dipa Karmakar, will be back in action in the Jakarta Asiad after a long injury-­induced break. The death-defying vault, its difficulty level axed recently, is very much on the mat, says Dipa.

First there was Saina; then Sindhu sprang onto the scene in a flash. Indian gym­­nastics, too, has a new star—Aruna Budda Reddy, the first Indian to win a medal at the Gymnastics World Cup. Aruna won bronze in Melbourne in vault, favo­urite discipline of Deepa Karmakar too. A black belt in Karate, Aruna credits her late father, B. Narayana Reddy, with every­thing. Also on her mind is to make the most of her career ­bef­ore she’s 24.

Dipa Karmakar’s story till now is one of grit—unwavering devotion to her craft, a stubborn climb up the vaulting highs in the cut-throat gymnastics world, and a talent for risk-taking (see her do the Produnova). Oly­m­pics have bec­ome more int­­­­­eresting .
