“She is not yet ready for a tournament like the Commonwealth Games. So, the target is to make her fully ready for the Asian Games (August 18-September 2),” Nandi said.

The Gold Coast Games take place from April 4-15.

“She is fit but needs more time to be competition-ready,” her coach said.

India’s top gymnast Dipa Karmakar has been forced out of the upcoming Commonwealth Games owing to the career-threatening knee injury she picked up last year, her coach Bisweshwar Nandi said.

“I would not call it a setback and she has taken it very sportingly,” added the coach.

The nature of the injury, which she picked up during a training camp, has not allowed her to compete since the Rio Olympics.

Karmakar, the first Indian female gymnast to compete in the Olympics where she finished a historic fourth in the women’s vault at the 2016 Rio Games, opted out of the CWG trials taking place at the Indira Gandhi Stadium.

The 24-year-old had undergone an Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) surgery in April last year and is continuing to undergo a lengthy rehabilitation process.

She had scripted history at the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, becoming the first Indian woman to win a medal in gymnastics in the mega-event.

She has, however, started training, according to Nandi.
