BEIJING (BP)--Nancilea Foster's worst fear as a diver came true when she was 14 years old.
She was used to the flipping and twisting. In the middle of this dive, however, Foster's head slammed against the board.

"It was a pretty bad accident," Foster said.
Eight months later, it happened again. And since then, "I've had quite a few struggles with fear issues."
Now 24, Foster has found the Lord to be faithful and patient as she has struggled through those fears. And she has recovered well. She makes her Olympic debut Aug. 15 in the women's three-meter springboard competition.
"I would like to win a medal," Foster said. "That's my goal. But ultimately, my job is to go into Beijing and to do the very best that I can. Do my five dives to the best of my ability. That's kind of my outlook going into it. I'm really looking forward to the whole experience of being able to give it my all." Read More
