One of the most fascinating dynamics to emerge from this year's Olympics are the triumphant spiritual stories that so many of the athletes have been openly sharing—stories of overcoming the odds, relying on God and finding identity in Christ.
Among those sharing these uplifting informational bits is Canadian skeleton racer Elisabeth Vathje, who opened up to the Baptist Press about her Christian faith, proclaiming that it is the most important thing in her life.
"First and foremost, I'm a child of God. I'm not a skeleton athlete or any of that," she said. "It doesn't matter my profession, but Jesus is still my Lord, and that's what's first in everything I do."
