Blog October 15th “Christians in Sport”
Two weeks ago, I shared some information on the new US Open Golf Champion – Bryson DeChambeau. Part of that was Bryson’s Christian testimony. This reminded me of when my very dear friend Bob Milliken – then Head of RE at Crofton Secondary School – kept putting in my pigeon hole ( I was Head of PE at the time) leaflets on Christians who were top sports persons. I remember at the time feeling somewhat surprised to hear that the golfer Bernhard Langer was a committed Christian.
Since writing this blog I have pointed out a lot of currently famous sports persons who are Christians- recently, the golfer Zach Richardson, the rugby player Maro Itoje, the Liverpool Football Manger Jurgen Klopp and the footballer Romulu Lukaku.
I googled who else in sport was a Christian and here is a list of some that I knew – I wonder if you are as surprised as I was with some of the names on the list?
1) Usain Bolt
2) Christine Ohuruogu
3) Danny Surridge
4) Bubba Watson
5) Lewis Hamilton
6) David Luis
7) Thiago Silva
8) Rhaeem Sterli
9) Edison Gavani
10) Neymar
11) Andres Iniesta
12) David Silva
13) Philippe Coutinho
14) Jose Mourinho
15) Marcelo Bielsa
16) Christiano Ronaldo
17) Lionel Messi
