Michael Phelps captured most of the Olympic headlines, but another U.S. swimmer, Charlie Houchin, earned a gold medal in the 4x200-meter freestyle relay.
Houchin told Athletes in Action that it was his faith in Christ that made the victory sweet.
"Having faith in Christ helps you sort of stay in the moment, enjoy what's going on, not be anxious about what could or could not happen in the future," he explained.
"I would hope having an Olympic gold medal won't change my life," he continued. "It might make it more exciting in the business world, or it might make it more exciting in terms of having cool stories to share."
"But hopefully it's just a vehicle for driving the things that I'm already passionate about, and clearly, my faith in Christ being the most important," he said.
