New Delhi: Indian Gymnast Dipa Karmakar made all Indians proud on Saturday by becoming the first Indian woman to enter individual vault finals. However, there was disappointment in store for her fans as they could not witness the Tripura girl make history owing to Star Sports’ wink-and-you’ll-miss-it coverage of her event. 
Twitterati lashed out at official broadcaster of Rio Olympics expressing their displeasure over channel’s biased attitude towards Karmakar.
Here are some of the ‘angry’ tweets. We hope Star Sports will take note of these to avoid such backlash in future. 

T 2341 - #DipaKarmakar .. they said they would show you but never did .. channels interested in the other country athletes ! Good luck
