Winter Olympic Games: Elana Meyers

Elana Meyers Taylor has won four gold medals in world bobsled competition and is a two-time Olympic medalist in the two-woman event. Meyers Taylor also participated in the Fellowship of Christian Athletes book, Heart of a Champion, as a guest editorial writer.

She wrote that Matthew 22:37–39 challenged her to take on a unique perspective of the competition—even those competing under the banner of another flag. “Jesus replied, 'You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. A second is equally important: Love your neighbor as yourself.'” Referring to her training at Lake Placid in 2014, she said, “We are here for a higher purpose," and echoing Romans 8:28: “it’s all about serving His purpose.”
