14 Dec: Katya Antoniuk, Winter Olympic Cross-Country Skier

For seven years between 1991 and 1998 Katya Antoniuk was the Belarus cross-country skiing champion.  She regularly competed across Europe and won several cross-country skiing marathons.  Then, in 1998, she fulfilled a lifetime ambition when she took part in the Winter Olympics, at Nagano in Japan where she finished 42nd among a tough field of competitors in the women’s 15 kilometres.  Katya talks about her skiing career and about her journey to faith from a background of atheism to becoming a follower of Jesus Christ.
