Jonathon Edwards and God

A very interesting article I came across on Letsrun, that's not your usual article on running results and exploits. Jonathon Edwards, the British Olympian, won gold, but lost God. I thought it interesting what he had to say about sports psychology:

“Looking back now, I can see that my faith was not only pivotal to my decision to take up sport but also my success,” he says. “I was always dismissive of sports psychology when I was competing, but I now realise that my belief in God was sports psychology in all but name.”

Richard Dawkins and Christopher Hitchens will be nodding their approval
