One of America's most heralded young divers, David Boudia twice went for Olympic gold, training obsessively and wholeheartedly for success. In his first Olympics, he failed miserably, not winning a single medal. Four years later saw a different story: He mounted the podium twice, winning both gold and bronze. The difference? In the intervening years, he'd changed the focus of his quest from seeking glory for himself to giving glory to God.

encouraging redemptive story

great redemption story/good theological insight, well written. avoids the pitfall of bad theology such as 'if you love God you win a gold medal' the author also is clear about his sin and his continual daily need for Christ. highly recommend it and I don't have any interest in diving.
