Steele Johnson & David Boudia – Synchronized Diving (1 silver)

"It's just an identity crisis. When my mind is on this [diving], and I'm thinking I'm defined by this, then my mind goes crazy," Boudia told NBC. "But we both know that our identity is in Christ, and we're thankful for this opportunity to be able to dive in front of Brazil and in front of the United States. It's been an absolutely thrilling moment for us." Johnson chipped in: "The way David just described it was flawless — the fact that I was going into this event knowing that my identity is rooted in Christ and not what the result of this competition is just gave me peace ... and it let me enjoy the contest."

More than 20 Team USA athletes have clearly articulated their faith in God through interviews, social media and blog posts. By giving God the glory in their successes, and gracefully yielding to His will in their disappointments, these stars are an inspiration to all of us.
