If there was any doubt a world-class athlete could find fulfillment in the increasingly secular world of competitive sports and pursue a virtuous life, Olympian skier Rebecca Dussault could make a good case for it.
Colorado-native Dussault has traversed the world claiming championships and competing in the 2006 Winter Olympics in Turin, Italy. She finished sixth in the Triathlon World Championships in Germany, the best-ever finish for an American woman. She is an eight-time U.S. National Cross Country Ski champion and top-ranked U.S. Women’s Nordic skier.
Through it all, she’s found sports nourish her faith and vocation.
