A few months ago, I had the the privilege of getting acquainted with Trevor Marsicano, a rising star in U.S. Long Track Speed Skating. I asked Trevor how his faith influences him as an athletic competitor. He said, "It helps me remember that I am competing for more than just a result or a medal. I am competing for God."

You'll get to see Trevor in Vancouver in just a few days. He was the only Christian athlete I was able to personally talk with this year; therefore, I'm thrilled to tell you about a great new multi-language, sports evangelistic site, Beyond the Ultimate, where top Christian athletes, including many of this year's Olympic contenders, tell their amazing stories of struggle and triumph as they go beyond the ultimate achievement in sports to experience faith in Jesus Christ.
