Rats. I found out yesterday that I missed what probably would have been the highlight, for me, of NBC’s coverage of the 2008 Beijing Olympics. My pastor told me that Mary Carillo did a feature piece on Eric Liddell, a 1924 Olympic gold medalist who later became a missionary to China. Liddell’s life was also the subject of one of my all-time favorite movies, Chariots of Fire. If you haven’t seen it, drop what you’re doing now and go rent it. But I digress.
The point is, I missed the NBC segment. Rats again. If anyone reading this knows if that segment is available for viewing anywhere, please leave a link in the comments. Thanks!
Incidentally, Ben Witherington had a nice post yesterday elaborating more than I have here on both the movie and the man.
