While many Olympic athletes take credit for their achievements, these medalists at the Tokyo Olympics gave glory to God.
And, to be clear, there are A LOT of Christian Olympic medalists. This is a growing list from 2021:

Athing Mu, one of the youngest and fasted women in the world, took home gold Aug. 2 in the women’s 900-meter run, ending a 53-year drought for Americans in the event, ChristianHeadlines reports.
Mu gave all the glory to God just a month after she went pro.
“God definitely took the battle for this one!” she said. “So, thank you Lord!”
‘By the grace of God!’ U.S. women’s wrestler has emotional reaction to winning gold
Tamyra Mensah-Stock, who started wrestling after being bullied in high school, took gold in the women’s 68 kg final against Blessing Oborududu of Nigeria on Aug. 3.
“Of course I surprise myself. It’s by the grace of God I’m even able to move my feet,” Mensah-Stock, 28 from Katy, Texas, told NBC afterward.
“Like I just leave it in His hands, and I pray that all the practice, that all the hell that my freaking coaches put me through pays off, and every single time it does,” she said, adding she has no limits.
