American sprinter Sydney McLaughlin broke a world record Wednesday in the 400-meter hurdles.
Alongside Team USA teammate, Dalilah Muhammad, who took second place, giving the pair gold and silver medals, they praised God and country.
McLaughlin told NBC she was “grateful” to represent the United States at the Olympics.
“Just trusting the process. Giving the glory to God. That’s all. This season, hard work and dedication and just really grateful to be able to represent my country and to have this opportunity,” she said.
Muhammad, who overcame a hamstring injury and getting COVID twice, said she was “just so thankful to God for getting me to this point…so thankful to end on a silver medal for the USA.”
After the reporter asked if the two were an example of iron sharpening iron, McLaughlin responded: “100 percent.”
