David Wise made history in 2014 as the first-ever Olympic champion in Men's Skiing Halfpipe at the Winter Games in Sochi, Russia.

Calling himself a "Truth Follower" on his Twitter profile, Wise explained in a 2014 interview that faith plays a "huge role" in his confidence.

"I don't have to worry about what's happening or the outside influences as much because I feel like I can trust God, and He's going to see me through," Wise said, as reported by CBN.

"I can look back on my path and realize that God had a pretty significant part in taking care of me. It takes the pressure off and I can enjoy it."
