Debbie Flood – My Story

Debbie Flood has competed in several Olympic Games, winning silver in 2004 and 2008 as well as winning three World Championship Gold Medals.

Here, Debbie chats about how she got into rowing, and also how she decided to become a Christian.

One of the big questions in the sports world is ‘Who am I?’ – Debbie explains how it can be easy to find her identity in her performance as an athlete, but that her identity as a child of God is far more important. Races can be lost, and medals are forgotten about, but faith in Jesus won’t fade away.
