One take at a time

About me

Hi there! I am Divya Purohit, and I am a Olympics sports writer at EssentiallySports. As an avid sports junkie I delved in the world of sports journalism and started crafting content around my favorite athletes. By means of my distinct storytelling approach, I provide perceptive viewpoints on diverse sports stories. My primary area of coverage is gymnastics, and I often deep dive into the depths of the technicalities of the sport narrating about the amazing path taken by the queen Simone Biles. Through my storytelling prowess, I brought my readers closer to Biles' incredible performance on the vault after her two-year hiatus by providing exclusive coverage of the 2023-24 US Gymnastics team. Though gymnastics is still my primary concentration, I take inspiration from Alpine Skiing icon Mikaela Shiffrin. I also tend to mingle my way to surfing stories, which brings me immense joy. At leisure, I like to paint my canvas, listen to podcasts, and mostly binge-watch my comfort shows.
