Two-time national champion


Rev. Darrell Mitchell of Marshalltown, center, won two events at the National Senior Games this weekend in Albuquerque, N.M. Mitchell, the pastor at Hope United Methodist Church, won both the 200-meter and 400-meter events for the 90-94 age division in a competition that welcomes more than 13,000 athletes from all 50 states, Canada and Barbados. Mitchell won the 200 in a time of 51 seconds, and he won the 400 in 1 minute, 57 seconds — all of this four years after tearing a hamstring during the 2015 National Senior Games in St. Paul, Minn.
