Product Description

In 2012, Boudia made a splash when he won Olympic gold for the platform diving competition at the London games. But his journey from "aspiring" to "elite" athlete wasn't easy! Chronicling his heartbreaking disappointments and against-the-odds triumphs, he shows how radical faith in Christ transformed him from an ego-driven champion to a humble servant of God. 224 pages, hardcover from Nelson.

Publisher's Description

One of America’s most heralded young divers, David Boudia twice went for Olympic gold, training obsessively and whole-heartedly for success. In his first Olympics, he failed miserably, not winning a single medal. Four years later saw a different story: he mounted the podium twice, winning both gold and bronze. The difference? In the intervening years, he’d changed the focus of his quest from seeking glory for himself to giving glory to God. In Greater Than Gold, Boudia provides a behind-the-scenes access to the rarefied world of world-class athletics while also showing readers that when they place their hope in God, they receive what they’ve been seeking all along.
