Imagine, you run the 800-meter race for the US team. You are, without question, the fastest woman in the Western Hemisphere and Olympic bound. It’s 1967, you’re competing in a European/USA competition, a preview of the upcoming 1968 Olympic games.
From around the world the media has blown this one up, big time. Ignoring the other runners, they have turned this into a two-woman race, pitting you against the fastest woman in the Eastern Hemisphere, a Yugoslavian by the name of Vera Nikolic.
Then, on the last turn of the final lap, the one person you were determined to beat, Vera Nikolic, intentionally elbows you in the ribs, knocking you off the track and to the ground. You’re furious!
That is exactly what happened to Madeline Mims. What came next was nothing short of a miracle, a story that would not reach its amazing conclusion until one year after the 1968 Olympic games.
Listen to this episode of the Family & Stories podcast as Madeline shares the story of how God’s grace transformed both of their lives. It’s only one of several we will talk about, don’t miss it.
