American Olympic Wrestler PAUSES During Competition For A Prayer – Before Making HISTORY! [VIDEO]

This is fantastic! American Olympic wrestler Helen Maroulis became the first woman in American history to go gold in wrestling. She paused during the competition to pray and said that in the end she just left it to God. Amen, sister, amen!!

There were tears of joy as she bested Japan’s 13-time World Champion and three-time gold medalist Saori Yoshida. The picture of Helen crying, running and laughing wrapped in the American flag is iconic. The 24 year-old golden blonde from California gave it up to God and won it all. It was way more than enough.

American Olympic wrestler Helen Maroulis paused briefly to pray Thursday as she walked to the wrestling mat to confront a legendary rival, Japan’s 13-time World Champion and three-time gold medalist Saori Yoshida.

“All I said over and over again was, ‘Christ is in me, I am enough,’ and that was one of the most freeing things I’ve ever said,” the 24-year-old Californian said.

“I don’t need to be perfect. Leading up to training camp, people would say, ‘How did you feel about practice today?’ or, ‘You looked good,’ and I had no answer because I was looking for perfection everywhere. Finally I was like, ‘You know what? I’m not going to find it. So what I have is enough, and I trust God that what I have is enough,’” she said.

Helen was overcome with joy and emotion as she stood on that podium for America. “I looked at that flag and I’m like, ‘The American flag represents our country and it stands for so much,’” Maroulis said. “I have this gold medal, but I’m also thinking there are Americans in other countries at war and there’s flags there. It’s just such an honor to be an American, it’s such a blessing. When the anthem plays, how could you not cry?” she said. And that’s how we expect an American winner to react, with love for their country. Not with racism and cop-hatred.

She even took her gratitude and love of the Lord to Instagram: “Not to us, O Lord, not to us, but to your name give glory, for the sake of your steadfast love and your faithfulness” psalm 115:1 #christisinmeiamenough,” she posted.

Helen had a parting message for other girls to give them courage and hope: “I hope with this gold medal, girls will view this as a sport for them,” Maroulis said. “If you knew how I was when I was 7: the shy girl, scared and timid. Even now, I’m not super confident all the time. And wrestling has helped with all of that. Girls can learn so much developing confidence through wrestling.”

This is what a true champion looks like… full of grace, gratitude and reverence. Congratulations to Helen Maroulis… you are truly an American legend!
