Meet Earthquake Survivor Gaurika Singh, The Youngest Athlete At Rio Olympics

The story of 13-year old Gaurika Singh is quite scary as she had survived the frightful experience of natural disaster in Nepal a year ago. The swimmer was available at Kathmandu in April 2015 for national for the national titles when the huge quake struck Nepal bringing about tremendous harm to the nation. A few people were executed and harmed. Talking about her experience to the official Rio Olympics site, Gaurika said:

It was alarming. We were on the fifth floor of a building that we couldn’t escape from, so we protected under a table for 10 minutes amidst the room and needed to go down the stairs a short time later after the tremor took place. Fortunately, it was a new building so it did not collapse like others around. Luckily, it was a distinct building so it did not fell like others around.
