Dipa Karmakar has qualified for the vault final, finishing 8th after the completion of Subdivision 5!

...

We have the last subdivision left. Remember, the top 8 gymnasts qualify for the finals.

...

So we are done with the Subdivision 4 and Dipa Karmakar is now at the 7th spot. 

...

The only event where Dipa can win a medal is in VAULT. She is currently SIXTH in the event after subdivision 3 got over. Subdivision 4 and 5 are yet to take place and if the athletes there don't manage to displace Dipa from the top 8, the 22-year-old from Agartala will contest for the medal on 14th August in the Vault apparatus medal rounds.

...

Subdivision 4 qualification will start at 2 am IST, while Subdivision 5 will start at 5 am IST. So we will have to wait until around 7 am IST before we know whether Dipa Karmakar has qualified for the vault final or not!

...

17 gymnasts will compete in Subdivision 4, while 20 will compete in Subdivision 5. So Dipa has to hope that not more than 2 of the remaining 37 gymnasts get a higher score than 14.850 in vault!

...

Explaining how Dipa is still in the running:

...

Contrary to popular belief right now, Dipa hasn't qualified for the vault finals yet. She is 6th in vault from 3 subdivisions, but there are still 2 subdivisions to go. So if 3 ppl from the next 2 subdivisions get a higher score than 14.850, Dipa will not go into the final.

...

If the results from subdivision 4 & 5 go in her favour, and Dipa (6th currently) manages to stay in the top 8, she will go through the final in the Vault event, scheduled for 14th August.

...

Dipa is in the running for a medal in Vault. She has been eliminated from the Overall category, Balance Beam, Floor Exercise and Uneven Bars

...

Medals are given for each apparatus. Dipa is in the running for a medal in the vault event, the final of which is scheduled for 14th August. Will Dipa make it?

...

So if Dipa Karmakar finishes in the top 8 of any event, she will qualify for the final in that particular event. She is currently 6th in Vault - her favourite event.

...

Dipa Karmakar is 6th in the Vault, 47th in Uneven Bars, 38th in Beam and 44th in Floor Exercise after the first day of Artistic Gymnastics

...

So the final results are in! Dipa hasn't yet qualified for the vault finals with a score of 14.850, as she is in 6th place but could possibly fall lower if the next gymnasts get better scores. But has missed out on all the other categories. That's not entirely unexpected though, because vault was always going to be her strongest routine. Her medal chances remain pretty much the same as they were before the start of this qualification event!

...

Dipa is now 27th in the all-round standings, as the last few gymnasts are registering some strong scores. This means goodbye to the chances of qualifying for the all-round final, unfortunately.

...

Dipa needs to finish in the top 24 to qualify for the final or top 8 in each event. She is currently 27th with 2 more qualification rounds to go.

...

Dipa sliding down further in the all-around category. No chance for her to finish in the top 24 now.

...

Dipa Karmakar is currently 27th in the overall rankings now. Her best was 14.850 on the vault, which was the 6th best in the particular event.

...

Just a reminder: Dipa is currently 6th in vault, 47th in uneven bars, 37th in balance beam and 43rd in floor exercises. But she's now fallen to 25th in the all-round standings with a total score of 51.665! If things finish as they are, Dipa will qualify for the vault finals, while missing out on all the other categories.

...

Just a handful of gymnasts left to carry out their routines, which means Dipa could very well hold on to her 23rd place in the all-round standings.

...

Dipa is still 6th in vault, which suggests she is guaranteed of a place in the vault finals! That's great news for the history-maker from India.

...

Dipa Karmakar scores a 12.033 in her final rotation - Balance Beam. She is out of medal contention now as she fails to qualify for the final.

...

Dipa has slipped to 23rd in the all-round standings now.

...

That means she still has a chance to qualify for the all-round finals. Remember, the top 24 in the overall standings qualify for the all-round finals. And Dipa is currently 21st!

...

But guess what, Dipa has climbed up to 21st position in the all-round standings, with a total score of 51.665!
