Winter Olympics: India bags gold in Gola Eating at PyeongChang 2018

20, Feb 2018 By Viraj Sawant

Consistently, for the 6th time in a row, India has won the gold medal in Gola Eating at the Winter Olympic Games.

While India won the gold medal, Mexico won a silver and Saudi Arabia won the bronze medal in this competition. Needless to say, the competition was tough for the 23-year-old athlete. The Saudi Arabian athlete quit at his 23rd gola, while the Mexican ate 33. India’s new gola prince made sure he ate the 34th to finish the contest and won a gold at the PyeongChang Winter Olympics.

The 23-year-old athlete attributes his win to his uncle, Raju mama, who sells Gola in the by lanes of old Delhi. “My mama helped me prepare for the Olympics. It was due to his gola making skills I could build the strength and the endurance needed to win this competition,” said the young boy with a frozen jaw.

Wishes for the ace Indian gola eater have been pouring in from all parts of the country on Twitter and Facebook. The sports ministry was the first one to congratulate him on the win and has announced a prize of one thousand and one rupees for the Gold medal winner. Also, market experts have speculated that the gola market will witness a massive surge in the months to come. The Kingfisher Group has already planned on venturing into the gola industry with a beer flavour gola.

Previously, India has won six gold medals in the Gola Eating Competition.
