Congratulations to David Boudia and Steele Johnson on their win in Rio yesterday with a Silver medal in Men’s Sychronized Platform. This is the highest finish in USA history for the event.
Before taking their 2 1/2 somersault with 2 1/2 twist dive, the two recited Philippians 4:6.
‘Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.’
With that successful dive, history was made. After the event, NBC interviewed the duo who gave all the praise to God. David Boudia talked about the pressure before his dive and how when he stops putting his identity in his Olympic aspirations and instead finds his identity in Christ, his perception changes.
Steele repeated the same, even with it being his first Olympic event. We are so happy for them both!
