Aruna Reddy wins bronze medal for India in Gymnastics World Cup 2018


Aruna Budda Reddy on Saturday created history by becoming the first Indian gymnast to win an individual medal at the Gymnastics World Cup as she clinched a bronze in the women’s vault event here.

Reddy could not make it to the national team for the 2010 Commonwealth Games as she was underage but then she took part in the 2014 CWG and now she is well on her way achieving success in the world of gymnastics.

The 22-year-old Reddy, who hails from Hyderabad, scored 13.649 average points to win the bronze at the Hisense Arena. Tjasa Kysslef of Slovania won the gold with a score of 13.800 while Emily Whitehead of Australia took the silver with 13.699.

Sixteen countries are featuring in the World Cup series event this year across two days of qualification, with the top eight athletes on each apparatus heading to the finals.

A medal at the Gymnastics World Cup is a commendable achievement and this feat will only boost Reddy’s confidence for the events in future.
