Highlights From Ashish Kumar’s Career
So apart from Ashish Kumar Gymnastics biodata we showed above, his journey started from the Bronze Medal in 2006 Asian Artistic Gymnastics Championships, which was also the first major International medal of India in Gymnastics.
While in 2006 Asian Games, Kumar finished 18th and couldn’t perform to the expectations.
Later, his another bronze medal in the floor exercise event and a silver medal in vault, at the 2010 Commonwealth Games created history in the Indian Gymnastics. Ashish Kumar gymnast was the first Indian to do so, which itself a record and tough goal to achieve for the future Indian Gymnasts.
India’s only Gymnastic medal in Asian Games, was also earned by one and only Ashish Kumar (Bronze), in 2010. It was the floor exercise event, where Ashish Kumar added another medal in his tally.
The place of a gold which was still empty in Kumar’s career, is fulfilled in South Central Asian Gymnastics Championships, 2011, where he won four gold medals respectively in all-around, floor exercise, vault, and high bar event in Dhaka, which this coloured medal, Ashish Kumar biography wouldn’t be so impressive.
But after this amazing performance, Ashish Kumar disappeared from the International Gymnastics court, when he didn’t even qualify for the floor finals in 2014 Asian Games.
Some said, he is a mega pack of gymnastic talent, some said, it was sports politics who ruined the raising career of this Gymnast.
Well, who knows the truth. We can only do is, Pray and wish lots and lots of success in future for Ashish Kumar.
