Skeleton Racer Katie Uhlaender Won’t Quit — on God or the Olympics



Three Olympic Games without a medal haven’t deterred skeleton racer Katie Uhlaender from trying again at a fourth in Pyeongchang.


Neither has her frustration over the reversal of an International Olympic Committee decision to ban 28 Russian athletes and strip them of their Sochi medals amid evidence of widespread doping — a turn of events that denied her a bronze medal.


These setbacks — and the death of her father — may have challenged her Christian faith, she said. But they did not shake it loose.


“Quitting is never an option, so why would I quit on God? He guides me and gives me the strength to keep going,” she told Christian Sports Journal.
