Sydney McLaughlin adds a message of praise to her astonishing world record recently set in Oregon.
At 22 years old, Sydney McLaughlin is undeniably queen of the World Athletics Championships being held in Oregon. She won the 400 meter hurdles with a spectacular time of just 50’68” – reaching the limits of what is humanly possible. But the best part is her story. She’s a woman of faith who knows who is really responsible for her achievement.
This is the post she left on Instagram, right after setting a new record:
“So let us come BOLDLY to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive His mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most.” – Hebrews 4:16
Praise. His. Name.
What a beautiful day yesterday was. Preparing for this meet, the core of my team was centered around faith and belief. The amount of prayer coupled with hard work was divinely culminated in 50.68 seconds. By the grace of God, we accomplished our goal. Thank you so much to my coach, my husband, my team, my family, and all of my supporters. Let’s continue pushing the bounds of the sport, because with God, all things are possible! God bless.
