Defar Wins Running With an Image of The Blessed Virgin!
I had missed this (or the BBC did not show it? Can someone of my English readers tell me more about this?) and I am glad to repost it courtesy of CNA and Father Z.
The fact the lady has run with the image of the Blessed Virgin is particularly impressive.
On a lighter note, one notices even Usain Bolt feels the need to cross himself before a race, though being Usain Bolt he can’t avoid being over the top in that, too.
I also liked the Russian athlete who before her final start crossed herself uninterruptedly from the “ready” to the starting signal.
I am anxiously awaiting for the next idiot asking the Christian signs be forbidden from Olympic games,lest some Muslim (read: some anti-clerical atheist) should feel offended.
