The Day I Won A Prize 

I was never a great athlete but once I managed to win a prize. It happened on a School Sports Day when I was asked to represent my class in the Long Jump. My class-master reckoned that I might have a chance to win and he was right.

I did win, but not the first prize. I only managed the second place. We were each given three jumps. There were about ten of us competing for the prizes. When my turn came, I ran down the lane as fast as I could and took off at the board. I thought I jumped very well but it was a foul jump. So I waited for my next jump.

I saw the other competitors leap like gazelles into the sand-pit. One particular boy, the eventual winner, was built like a tank. He was not tall, but his legs were muscular and strong. So when I him make his jump, I knew that no one else would be able to beat him.

No one did. I managed my best jump of 3.65 meters and that was nowhere close to his best. The other competitors did much worse.

I was delighted to collect my little plastic prize from the headmaster. It was the first time I had ever won anything. My class-master patted me on my back. I smiled happily as I went home to show the prize to my parents.
