Tatjana Schoenmaker, an Olympic swimmer from South Africa, set a new record in women's swimming, and attributes the success directly to God.
On Wednesday, Schoenmaker was massively successful in the women's 200-meter breaststroke, setting a new record time at 2:19.16.
The 24-year old Olympian also broke records in the preliminary rounds; setting the time of 1:04.82 in the 100-meter breaststroke.
The finals for 200-meter breaststroke are scheduled for Thursday.
Throughout all of this, Schoenmaker has not been quiet about her faith. She has worn two caps the entire time; a green one representing South Africa, and a second one with a blue Jesus Fish and "Soli Deo Gloria" (Latin for Glory to God Alone) printed on the side.
In an Instagram post prior to the games, Schoenmaker wrote a prayer expressing her intent and her thankfulness for the upcoming events.
“Father God, may Your will be done, may Your peace fill us up, may we praise You no matter what the outcome, may we be empowered by Your strength to give our all and may we forever be in awe of Your goodness! Thank You for bringing us to this very moment.”
