3 Medals Won In International Event By 94 Year Bhagwani Devi

Her story is an inspiration to millions who have retired and who give up early. News says that Bhagwani Devi started preparations just six months back. Age is just a number. Just NEVER SAY RETIRED.

Read a quotation “Don’t regret getting older. It’s a privilege denied to many:. Another one said, “We are not senior citizens, we are recycled teenagers.”

Well, all must have read the current story of 94 year young Bhagwani Devi who won a bronze in shot put at the World Masters Athletics Championship in Tampers, Finland. When she was asked to react she said she did not like the colour of bronze. And, as luck would have it, she won a gold medal in the 100m sprint. Not satisfied with two medals, she won another bronze in the discus throw event.

Bhagwani Devi’s inspiration came from his grandson, who is a para athlete, and now her coach too.

 Presently she is preparing for the next world championship.

Her story is an inspiration to millions who have retired and who give up early. News says that Bhagwani Devi started preparations just six months back. Age is just a number. Just NEVER SAY RETIRED.
