Top players never really participate in world cups.

And 22 seems a little old. Maybe not much of a growth potential? At least not as much as Dipa had?

5 indians have reached the finals here, sounds like a minor level competition.

Deepa's coach talking about moving back to Produnova.

Dipa has no choice but to excel in Produnova: Coach

I think that is her only chance if she has to be in contention for medals at international level.

Dipa Karmakar wins Bronze in vault in the FIG Individual Apparatus World Cup in Cottbus. It is a complicated process for Tokyo olympics qualification but this is one event which counts for that. She improved her score to an average of 14.316. This is a world class score. She would have finished 4th at 2018 world champs with this score. The 2018 world bronze medalist Alexa Moreno finished 4th in Cottbus. Chusovitina who finished 4th at worlds and 5th in Cottbus.

So, Deepa does seem to be back to pretty good even without her per vault Produnova. This may be enough for her to qualify for Tokoy but to go for a medal she will mostly need to get back to Produnova.

Yes, what a freak! She has to milk the Produnova to whatever she can. And, after she retires, hope she does a Gopichand!
