Olympians of Faith to Watch (Christianity Today)

Press agency AMP is working with the USOC and NBC to highlight other aspects of the athletes’ lives. They’ve told CT about a number of confessing Christians among the American athletes most likely to medal. A large proportion of them mention Philippians 4:13 in interviews and on their blogs: “I can do everything through him who gives me strength.”

It is a big list of athletes. Many of them have their own blogs. And can we not chuckle again at American Family Association’s blunder . . .

Tyson Gay has made a lot of news, for his hamstring injury, for being dubbed “Tyson Homosexual” by American Family Association’s autoreplace, and now for being exceptionally polite. “When I raise my hands in the air it is to give God praise,” he told a fan on Ask Tyson.
