Dipa Karmakar was the only bright star of Indian Gymnastics during it's de-recognition. The International Gymnastics Federation (FIG) has accepted the results of the recent elections held in the Gymnastics Federation of India (GFI) and has recognised the Indian body as an affiliate. Earlier this month, former Competition Commission of India chairman Sudhir Mital and Shantikumar Singh were elected as president and general secretary respectively of the Gymnastics Federation of India, bringing an end to the long-drawn factionalism in the sport. FIG secretary general Nicolas Buompane acknowledged the results. The GFI had been de-recognised back in 2012 by the ministry, which meant that the body was not getting any financial assistance from the Centre for trials, camps or coaches. It left the organization with no funds and the national championships was cancelled as well, despite repeated requests from Olympics star Dipa Karmakar. During this period of seven years India has lost many talented gymnast due to no funding. Take an example of Ashish Kumar who won Bronze in 2010 Asian games and Silver at Commonwealth games.Due to uncertainty about participation in 2014 Asian games and turbulent selection process of India team he eventually faded out. Now with Federation is reinstated we can hope proper channel will be there between governing body and athletes. Recently sports minister urged to federation to keep transparency and think about welfare of athletes so that Athletes don't have to suffer because of governing body faults. In future, with immense talent in India, Gymnastic will make progress if provided proper funding and good coaches too.
