Inside Rio: US swimmer Caeleb Dressel

This US swimmer puts scripture verses where?

Take a closer look at US swimmer Caeleb Dressel during some of his past swimming competitions, and you’ll notice a Scripture reference written across his goggles.  A favorite one for the 19-year-old is Isaiah 40:31: “but those who trust in the Lord will renew their strength; they will soar on wings like eagles….”

*That verse served as the inspiration for the large eagle tattoo on Dressel’s left shoulder, and the Scripture references he wears are not just for him.

“It’s the reason I’m in the sport, not just to go fast times, but to inspire people and show them where I find my happiness with what God’s given me,” Dressel said in an interview last year after U.S. Nationals.

*Not bad for a guy who gave up the sport for nearly six months his senior year of high school because he simply wasn’t enjoying it.

Dressel admits that he wrestled with some “mental demons” during that period and struggled in his walk with the Lord. But eventually he returned, both to the pool and to his commitment to Christ.  http://goo.gl/dksIgJ
