Ethiopian athlete Meseret Defar provided one of the most emotional moments of the London 2012 Summer Olympic Games when she crossed the finish line in the 5000 metre race to win the gold. She then pulled a picture of the Virgin Mary out from under her jersey, showed it to the cameras and held it up to her face in deep prayer. Before the race Orthodox Christian Defar entrusted herself to God with the sign of the cross. Afterwards a teary-eyed Defar proudly showed the picture of the Virgin Mary with the Baby Jesus that she carried with her for the entire race.
Usain Bolt thanks God for his Olympic sprint victories (never mind the double negative!).
