Well, I have had many experiences as a child, but I don’t remember them all. But there are few moments that are still imprinted in my memory. One of the happiest occasions was receiving numerous medals for sports competitions in my school.
Every year my school used to organize sports events, which used to take place for a week. When I was in 8th standard, my class and sports teacher encouraged me to join the sports event. Many activities were held, including relay races, archery, tennis, parkour, swimming, and so on. I took part in a variety of activities, including parkour, relay races, and swimming. I earned first place in parkour and relay races, and second place in swimming, after defeating 10 to 15 other participants in each event. It was my first great accomplishment, and I remember it well from my childhood.
The adrenaline rush experienced by individuals such as me, as well as the crowd who had assembled before the event, was amazing. It was a special day to me since it was the first time I won so many prizes in my life. My friends and batchmates were ecstatic, and they cheered me on as well. It came as a great surprise for me to win so many prizes in the tournaments by defeating such good competitors. In fact, some of them were older and in a higher grade than me. The fact that I won the tournament was very astonishing for my parents and me.
