Sydney McLaughlin
After setting the world record for the 400m hurdles recently, the athlete was quick to talk about how her faith has helped her perform: "I think the biggest difference this year is my faith, trusting God and trusting that process, and knowing that He’s in control of everything. As long as I put the hard work in, He’s going to carry me through. And I really cannot do anything more but give the glory to Him at this point."
