Bryan Clay: World's Greatest Athlete

He’s called the world’s greatest athlete! Bryan Clay out-distanced 40 decathletes at the 2008 Summer Games in Beijing to win Olympic gold!

“As a kid, I was angry, resentful—hurting people, punching anything and anyone in my way. In high school, track became my sanctuary. And my coach a lifesaver. And my mom prayed for me. But I was still screwing it up—big time. I wasn’t a happy guy. So I did what I always saw my mom do—I started reading the Bible!

It took some time--years. But I would’ve never imagined my life would be like it is now. I now have a platform to say, ‘look at the faithfulness of God in my life!’”
