15 Mar: World Champion Athletes Will Claye & Luvo Manyonga

We talk to two world champions at the recent World Indoor Athletics Championships in Birmingham.  Double Olympic triple jump silver medallist, Will Claye (above) from the United States, won the World Indoors title earlier this month title ahead of Brazil's Almir Dos Santos and Nelson Evora from Portugal.  He talks about the consistency of his performances over the past six years and the impact of his faith as a follower of Jesus Christ on his life and career.  Then South Africa's 2017 long jump world champion, Luvo Manyonga, tells us how he overcame his troubled teenage years and an 18-month ban to become champion of the world and finally United States sprint hurdler, Sharika Nelvis, tells us how her faith helps her in her life on and off the track.
