Virgin Mary ‘crosses the finish line’ with Olympic gold runner: Catholic News Agency (CNA)

The Catholic News Agency has a wonderful article about an Ethiopian runner who won the 5000 meters race recently, and who carried the image of the Blessed Virgin and the Christ Child with her throughout the race. She won the gold medal, and tearfully displayed the image of the Blessed Virgin and the Christ Child to the cameras after crossing the finish line.

What a splendid example of lay evangelization! She had her moment to witness to the world, and she took it.
