Our take: United States athletes have had chaplains for counsel and comfort since the 1988 Olympics. Here is an interesting profile on one of the chaplains, who was an Olympic athlete herself, helping athletes at 2012 Games in London.
London — Madeline Manning Mims has a message for the athletes at the London Olympics.
"They are loved. They are a part of humanity in a very special way and what they do matters," Mims said.
She's not talking about being loved by the fans - she's talking about being loved by God.
Mims is a gospel singer and a sports chaplain, and she's no stranger to the Olympics.
