Every two years, a massive flame burns for two weeks and hundreds of hopeful athletes gather beneath it. The best of the best compete to cement their names in history and take honor and glory back to their home country. When the Olympics take place, the entire world seems to stop. Every Olympics, some athletes cave under the pressure while others shine. Athleticism and endurance is always on display, but some athletes also show off their faith. Some Olympians are more open about it than others, but there are many who hold fast to their faith even as they fight for the culmination of years of hard work. With billions of eyes watching their every move, religious athletes have a chance to share their faith through both word and actions, and some leap enthusiastically at the chance to share their beliefs. What do you remember about religion at the Games? Can you name these religious Olympians?
