Good morning! Welcome to Sportskeeda's live coverage of the World Cup.
...
The Gymnastics World Cup in Melbourne, Australia has come to the attention of all Indian sports lovers, after Aruna Budda Reddy created history by becoming the first gymnast from the country to clinch a medal at the World Cup. 
 
Aruna, who hails from Hyderabad, now shares the same limelight on the world stage as the other top gymnast from the country, Dipa Karmakar, who had won medals at both the Commonwealth and the Asian Games in 2014, and finished fourth at the 2016 Rio Olympics. 
 
The 22-year-old earned praise from all quarters for her performance, and now she has become a real medal prospect for India at the upcoming 2018 Commonwealth Games, which is set to be held in Gold Coast, Australia, later this year. 
 
In today’s final, three Indians will be on show, as Ashish Kumar (men’s vault), Rakesh Kumar Patra (parallel bars), and Aruna Reddy (floor) take the centre stage. Let's hope for more medals today.
