That's all from us here at Sportskeeda. hope you have enjoyed our coverage. She might just have missed out on a medal but a new star of India is born. Dipa Karmakar, you beauty. Take a bow! You can be proud. Tokyo 2020 will be her year. The government needs to wake up and provide her with whatever she needs to fulfill her potential. She is a genuine medal contender four years from now. lets hope she gets it.

...

She has performed beyond our expectations. We can all be proud of what she has done today. This is surely not the last we see of her. We can rest assure this is just the beginning. There is plenty more to come from the Indian gymnast. let's hope this motivates other Indians to take onto gymnastics and make their country proud and outdo what she has just done here. A shining ray of hope in an otherwise miserable campaign for Team India at the Olympics so far. We are all proud of you Dipa.

...

4th place is a remarkable, remarkable achievement for Dipa. No words can be enough to describe just how impressive this performance is. Hailing from a small town, with very little assistance at the start of her career, Dipa has scripted a story that will be remembered for generations to come. Hats off to the young lady!

...

This has truly been a brave display from the girl from Tripura who has brought India to the world stage in Gymnastics, what a performance by her. She finishes 4th on the grandest stage in the world.

...

Heartbreaking end to her campaign. She was so close! But suffice to say she can hold her head high after this. What a champion!!!

...

Dipa finishes 4th.

...

Biles scores 16.033 to win the gold for USA

...

And that ends the medal hopes of Dipa, but what a show by the young lady! Take a bow Dipa, you have done something incredible today!!!

...

She lands her second with ease.

...

Nail-biting time for all Indian fans. Will Biles land a good vault in her second attempt too?

...

Biles gets 15.900 on her first

...

Biles lands her first perfectly

...

Even a 4th place finish would be higher than most expected, so Dipa is a champion already in many people's eyes!

...

Dipa is third as it stands

...

Time for Biles of USA, the favourite. 

...

15.241 in her second. She moves into the lead with 15.253

...

Whether she wins a medal or not though, Dipa has already done her country immensely proud.

...

All Indian fans would be hoping for the last gymnast to mess up her vault. That's not exactly a healthy attitude to have, but for a country starved of medals, it's the only resort.

...

She lands her second vault

...

Now her second vault

...

Paseka scores 15.266

...

All Indian hopes right now on Paseka getting a lower score than Dipa's! Even if Biles takes top spot, Dipa still in the top 4, whatever happens!
