Olympic Dreams

Don’t you know that the runners in a stadium all race, but only one receives the prize? Run in such a way to win the prize.—1 Corinthians 9:24

It takes incredible effort and ability to compete in the Olympic Games. Athletes train for years to get one shot at a gold medal. With so much pressure and the entire world watching, it's tempting for Olympians to think It's all about me. But as Christians, we know that's not true. Whether in the pool or on the track, it's all about God. Meet some fantastic athletes who've not only disciplined their bodies, but their hearts as well, to glorify God on the world's biggest stage.
