Gymnast Pranati Nayak starts training in Tokyo


Tokyo, July 19 (SocialNews.XYZ) Gymnast Pranati Nayak, who was among the first group of Indian athletes to travel to Tokyo from New Delhi on Sunday morning, began her training sessions ahead of the Olympics.

In images posted by the Sports Authority of India (SAI) on Twitter, Pranati points to the balance beam with Tokyo 2020 written on it. In the second photo, she is seen standing with her trainer Lakhan Manohar Sharma near the balance beam.


Pranati was a late entry into the artistic gymnastics event at the Olympics. In May, the 26-year-old received a ticket to Tokyo via the Asian quota as a second reserve after Sri Lanka’s Elpitiya Gehani.

The development came following the cancellation of the 9th Senior Asian Championships, which were scheduled to be held from May 29 to June 1 in Hangzhou, China, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The bronze medalist in vaulting at the 2019 Asian Championships in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia has been cleared to train at the SAI East Center in Kolkata.

Before leaving for Tokyo, Pranati had intense training sessions at the Indira Gandhi Indoor Stadium in New Delhi.

The women’s artistic gymnastics events at the Olympic Games take place from July 25 to August 3 at the Ariake Gymnastics Center.
