Is there anyone know how to reuse mysql query data that was fetched from php using mysql_fetch_array function?

For example:
//query my query statement
$query = mysql_query ("SELECT * FROM sample_table");

// So at here using while loop to populate the query result
while ($result = mysql_fetch_array($query))
{
 echo $result[0]; // for example to display only first column
}

When running the code as above, record would be displayed. However if I were to fetch again the data for example:

//query my query statement
$query = mysql_query ("SELECT * FROM sample_table");

// So at here using while loop to populate the query result
while ($result = mysql_fetch_array($query))
{
 echo $result[0]; // for example to display only first column
}

//after the first while loop, i loop again and no record returned
while ($result1 = mysql_fetch_array($query))
{
echo $result1[0];
}
