The Mysticals were practicing for the Annual MysticFest competitions.
When the Mysticals took a break, Scorch said, “Mysticals, a few days ago, India’s Neeraj Chopra won gold in javelin throw at the World Athletic Championships held in Budapest, Hungary. This is India’s first gold medal at the Championships.”
“I remember this athlete. He won a gold medal in the javelin throw at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. That, too, a first for India, right?” replied Felix.
“That’s correct, Felix,” said Scorch, “This time, Chopra is now the first Indian to win a gold medal at the Championships. Chopra’s throw was recorded at 88.17 meters in the finals!”
“What is this event all about, Scorch,” asked Verum.
“The World Athletic Championships was started in 1983. It is held every two years and has 49 events including on-track and off-track,” answered Scorch.
“I remember you told us that Chopra is an officer, a Subedar, in the Indian Army,” Felix stated and Scorch quickly added, “Yes, he is. He received many congratulations from the Indian Army for his commendable achievement. Chopra said he hasn’t achieved everything. He wants to work, push himself harder, and bring laurels to his country.”
“Here’s wishing the spirited athlete a superio-duperio Mystical luck!” Felix said and wielded his wand that left a trail of tiny golden stars.
