Before hitting the bobsled track on Tuesday for her Winter Olympics debut, Lolo Jones praised God on Facebook and shared a Bible verse to her nearly 300,000 followers.
Jones also made a nod to her bobsled teammate: “I am honored to race with you… Jaz, I know how hard you worked to get here. I’ve celebrated with you when we both won bobsled medal together and I’ve also shared your frustration when we didn’t. I can’t wait to go in this battle with you,” wrote Jones on Monday, a day before she and her teammate were set to compete in the Winter Olympics for the first time.
Jones, who currently sits in 11th place with Fenlator after the first two rounds of competition ended on Tuesday, said that she believed that regardless of the outcome “God has already answered our prayers.”
“He took you [Fenlator] from sitting on a couch watching the Olympics on tv four years ago to now racing in one and two years ago, he took me sitting on my couch wondering if I should give up on the Olympic dream to now participating in my first Winter Olympics,” she added.
Jones also shared 1 Peter 1:21: “Who through him are believers in God, who raised Him from the dead and gave Him glory, so that your faith and hope are in God.”
