Jacob Wukie, part of the U.S. men's archery team that won a silver medal in London, says he wants to use his new platform to share the gospel with other Olympic athletes, CBN News reports. "You just kind of meet some of the other medalists they have there at the time, and it's neat to meet people who are a little more well-known ... but also I'm hoping to be able to have maybe more opportunities to kind of speak and share Christ with people," Wukie said. "While for a long time archery has been a very big part of what I do, my identity is in my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Since I am confident that He is in control and has a plan for my life, I am able to give my best and let the rest lie in His hands. He has given me the talents and abilities that I possess; He has taught me to love those around me and what it means to push hard."
