Eloise Wellings is an Aussie Long distance runner & Olympic Athlete. She founded the Love Mercy Foundation in 2009 and has since impacted over 100,000 local Ugandans through health & agriculture programs. She is a strong Christian & has stated that she missed out on the Sydney 2000 Olympics due to an injury and thought God was punishing her. She went to church with a school friend and began to understand God’s love for her. She stated, “Once I found Jesus I was free to use the gifts He had given me and it didn’t matter if I succeeded or not.” Wellings also missed out on the Athens and Beijing Olympics due to injury. However, she states, “All of my disappointing results and disappointing injuries and heartbreak missing 3 Olympics, there was always this belief and faith that my identity is in Jesus and that’s my foundation. When you’ve got that, you can’t be shaken. Every time I get up to train, I just ask that he be glorified, that he give me the strength to do it, that he help give me the right thoughts to think – and not necessarily that I win but that he would be made known to people as I run.
