X Games Lady Snowboarder Shows Faith

Just a short note. I was watching the Winter X Games last night and saw an awesome win by Kelly Clark on the half-pipe. She did tricks no other girl snowboarder could do and seemed to simply just be having fun rather than competing in one of the most prestigious athletic events of the year. Apparently Kelly has been winning internationally for a while, but I was curious when I noticed the name “Jesus” on her snowboard after she won. I checked some internet info and found out that I was seeing correctly. Kelly is quite open about her faith and love for Christ. Thanks for being so open about this, Kelly, and thanks for an incredible performance.
