Dipa Karmakar qualified for the Vault Finals at the 2018 Artistic Gymnastics World Cup in Cottbus, Germany.

Dipa, who had an injury-marred campaign at the Asian Games, scored 14.100 to finish at the 6th place out of 16 gymnasts in the qualification.

But B Aruna Reddy, who had won a bronze medal in the women's individual vault event at the Melbourne World Cup, hurt her knee during the first vault and was ruled out of the competition.

So she didnt perform the second vault. She is going for MRI today," said Riyaz Ahmed Bhati, Vice-President of Gymnastic Federation of India (GFI).

Among Indian men gymnasts, Rakesh Patra scored 14.000 points on the Rings and finished at the 14th place out of 29 gymnasts, while Ashish couldn't produce his best, signing off at the 24th spot out of 37 gymnasts with a score of 13.200.
