Is Baseball too Obscure for the Olympics?

Since 776 BC in ancient Greece the Olympic Games have captivated audiences. There’s something special about witnessing other human beings achieving incredible feats in the sports arena. Surely, the Olympics have proved that people all around the world are capable of outstanding things. One of the first games ever practiced in Greece was the sport of wrestling. Wrestling, used to be more brutal than it is today, but the objective of ancient wrestling was very similar to modern wrestling. Two opponents attempted to toss each other on the ground three times, however, the few rules instilled only discouraged biting and male anatomy grabbing.

Even today wrestling is still a very popular sport that involves two people feuding with all their might to throw their opponent to the ground.

Is incorporating faith into sports as simple as praying before competitions, or conducting sportsmanship that is noticeably admirable? The sad truth is that many Christian athletes leave faith at the front door when they enter an athletic arena. Faith in sports can easily be consumed by competitive nature in the pursuit of victory.

One of these teams is the Men’s and Women’s cross country team. ...
