Olympic Swimmers and Mary’s Intercession

By | August 18, 2012

Mireia Belmonte, a 21 year-old Olympic swimmer from Spain, recently went to the shrine of Our Lady of Montserrat to dedicate the silver medals she won to the Virgin Mary.

It should also be noted that 15 year old Katie Ledecky (US), who won gold in one of the races that Mireia won silver in, said that she prays a Hail Mary before each race.
