Dipa has put in her hard work and the results are out here as you can see them. She worked day in and day out to win gold for her country. It is no doubt that India is extremely proud of her.
Winning gold is not an easy task and it required hard work, dedication, sacrifice, perseverance and determination. After sustaining an injury, it took her two years to recover and get back on track.
She is back with a bang and totally killing it.
She leaves an important message for everyone here- "To Never Give Up."
