The London 2012 Summer Olympics are showcasing not only premier athletic talent but faith. Many team hopefuls have been pointing to the heavens and citing their reliance on God.
Among them is Brittany Viola, who credits God for her success in making the Olympic diving team and says she hopes God will use her to share His love and truth with the world.
“Through faith and taking God’s Word as truth, I have performed and accomplished more than I could have ever hoped for or imagined,” Viola said, according to Beliefnet.com. “I expect God to use His children ... to touch the hearts and lives of thousands of athletes, spectators and individuals all over the world with His unimaginable love, acceptance, forgiveness and hope.”
