As Olympics begin, American record-holding sprinter keeps focused on faith and training
Our take: Francena McCorory, the American record holder for the indoor 400-meter dash, is set to compete in the 2012 London Olympics games in a 400-meter dash and the 4x400-meter relay. McCorory, who helped the U.S. take the gold at the 2011 World Championships in South Korea, credits God with her abilities, which she says she plans to use to honor him.
With wings on her feet and Christ in her heart, Francena McCorory is ready for the 2012 Olympics in London.
The 23-year-old graduate of Hampton University will compete in the 400-meter dash and the 4 x 400-meter relay.
The 400-meter is a grueling race, a near all-out sprint one lap around the track.
"It's a tough race, but if you have faith in God and faith in yourself and just faith in your training and what you've been working towards, it can be fun," McCorory told CBN News. "It's all about your mindset."
McCorory is definitely focused. She currently holds the American indoor 400-meter record.
