New Delhi: Bhagwan Devi Dagar, a 94-year-old Indian athlete, won one gold and two bronze medals for India at the 2022 World Masters Athletics Championships in Finland. This elderly woman won a gold medal in the 100m sprint. Bhagavani Devi achieved this feat at the World Masters Athletics Championships 2022 in Tampere, Finland.
The Goddess of God won gold in the 100m sprint event with a time of just 24.74 seconds. The only reason I have to write is that he is 94 years old and at this age many people cannot walk in the same way and he ran this distance. He also won a bronze medal in shot put. The Ministry of Sports and Youth Culture shared a photo of Bhagwan Devi with the medal on its official Twitter account and wrote in the caption that the 94-year-old Bhagwan Devi of India has once again shown that age is just a figure.
