How would you respond if the eyes of the world are watching your every move? If you broke through the ceiling of celebrity and rose to the top of your discipline? In his book, "Greater Than Gold" David Boudia describes his journey as a world-class diver and Olympic gold medalist. More importantly, he describes his journey to the Lord and how he uses his athletic platform to tell how Christ transformed his life.
A natural athlete and rising diving star at the University of Purdue, David was never one to shy away from a party or pursue his personal interests. He kept his sights on the glory and fame that he thought would come to him as an Olympic athlete. He got the opportunity to participate in the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing in synchronized diving and the 10-meter platform diving events. There, his personal pursuits stood in the way of him obtaining his ultimate goal of becoming an Olympic medalist. It was only by the grace of God that David was able to redirect his life and later rise to the top of his sport and ultimately the Olympic podium.
