The Olympic Games
The Olympics is not just a place where superb athleticism is showcased, it’s a domain for true bravery and internal strength that can never truly be measured. When you look up the definition of Olympian you’ll find that it says, “… of resembling, characteristic of, or suitable of the gods of Olympus; majestic or aloof.” An Olympian displays strength that is not average, it’s beyond belief and continues to astonish people. However, it’s important to realize that “characteristic of” describes an individual’s external and internal strength. The power that an athlete possesses goes further than how far or fast they can run, beyond how high they can jump, and surpasses how many points they score – an individual’s story makes up the true essence of the individual. Here are just a few of the stories behind Christian Olympians that inspire us.
