I haven't, who could?, watched all of the Olympics, but I have seen some amazing performances... but very few declarations of Christian faith among the athletes. When asked about the jitters, the pressure, etc. I haven't heard many mentions of prayer or grace. I haven't seen many instances of giving credit to God, or thanks to God, for the physical skills with which the winners have been blessed. I wonder if the Americans have been directed to not do this, or perhaps it's just the gymnastics and swimming require young lives so dedicated to training that they really don't see God's hand in their efforts, only their own blood, sweat and tears.
