Publisher's Description

"No guts no glory" the saying goes. But how far do "guts" go in the midst of physical feats of great strength? Learn from at least a dozen Christian Olympic gold-medal winners and Olympic contenders who tell their inspirational stories of finding God along their roads to glory. Experience the sweat and passion that goes into the making of a world-class athlete, while learning of these Christians' ultimate goals as competitive athletes and servants of God. For sixty days, plunge into each athlete's most personal moments at the games through each chapter's combination of worship, praise, and evangelism. Run, jump, and dive into these athletic experiences that reveal the role of friendship and the necessity of hard work as they teach the concepts of dedication and sacrifice. Learn of these athletes' preparation, pre-competition thoughts, faith, and how each athlete has placed his or her dependence on God.
