Dipa Karmakar,  first Indian female gymnast who won a bronze medal at the 2014 Commonwealth games in Glasgow was recently honored by Barbie for “breaking boundaries to inspire” the next generation girls. Over the past few years, the fashion doll manufacturer Barbie has transformed from pretty and beautiful dolls to news anchor, doctor, President, model and other roles.

Official Twitter handle of the company said: “As part of our ongoing commitment to #CloseTheDreamGap, we are honoring #MoreRoleModels from around the world than ever before. These women are breaking boundaries to inspire the next generation of girls,

Karmakar was celebrated with a doll wearing a red leotard along with a bronze medal. Acknowledging the honor, the 25-year-old gymnast shared a picture with the doll and tweeted, “Barbie has always shown girls that they can be anything!! On the occasion of her 60th anniversary, I am honored to be selected as a Barbie Role Model to help inspire the next generation of girls!”
