Bus Driver's Daughter, Pranati Nayak, Vaults To A Bronze At Asian Meet

Pranati Nayak went to Ulaanbaatar in Mongolia for the Asian Gymnastics Championships, relieved in the knowledge that she had successfully accomplished two of her four targets for 2019: build a house for her family and take half the responsibility of her elder sister’s wedding.

And Friday, Pranati stuck two clean landings scoring 13.384 on the vault and picked a commendable bronze, behind China (14.350) and Japan (13.584) at the Senior Asian Championships, 20 years after she first took to the sport in Midnapore.

Pranati is India’s third major vaulting medallist after Dipa Karmakar and Aruna Reddy, though her biggest challenge of 2019 will be the World Championships later this year.
