What is your favorite story from past Olympics? I think my all-time favorite is Derek Redmond from Barcelona 1992.
Here’s another video clip that shows more of how his Dad came to help him finish the race.
Another favorite is Kerry Strug from the 1996 Atlanta Olympics.
It’s Olympics time. In our house, we watched the opening ceremonies last night. Well, mostly Kay and Michelle watched last night. Daniel and I are waiting for the more competitive events!
Struggle and Triumph is a DVD and a website from the Athletes in Action ministry of Campus Crusade for Christ. It’s a great tool to share with your friends. Read stories from athletes, view video clips, and explore a personal relationship with God that the athletes talk about.
The DVD is being used in many countries as part of Olympic outreaches. It is being broadcast throughout the Middle East. It is on local television in Turkey and other countries in the area. Thousands of outreaches are happening in India and in Brazil and other countries. It is available in 36 languages. Order copies and give to your friends.
