With so much attention going to the U.S. men’s basketball team, it was almost a little too easy to overlook the dominance displayed by the American women. Team USA put any doubts to rest with an 86-50 victory over France en route to its fifth consecutive gold medal. The gold medal game completed an undefeated 11-0 run for the U.S., which also scored its 41st consecutive Olympic win.

Leading the charge was three-time gold medalist Tamika Catchings along with star players Diana Taurasi, Sue Bird and Candace Parker. Catchings was part of a strong contingency of Christian players on the team that also included Angel McCoughtry, Maya Moore and Swin Cash.

Inspiring Athletes has spoken to Catchings on multiple occasions and she has always been quick to point to her faith as a source of strength and inspiration.

“Everyone plays off my faith,” she said. “Being a WNBA player gives me a great platform to be able to give my testimony and talk about my faith.”
