Claim: Mainstream Media Ignores Usain Bolt's Faith Because...

Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt continues to take the running world by storm, winning golds three Olympics in a row and setting unbelievable records. With his iconic "lighting bolt" celebratory pose, some people describe him as cocky, but other acts show a deeply respectful side — like the time he paused a live interview to listen to the U.S. national anthem — and his sportsmanship toward competitors.

But is there faith behind his actions? CBN News says "yes," but they claim BBC is ignoring it in their coverage of the athlete from the British Commonwealth Caribbean realm.

According to CBN News, after easily qualifying for the 200 meter semi-finals race this morning, Bolt said, "Nothing would have been possible without Him."

But CBN says BBC cut that comment off and also called Bolt's kneeling in thankfulness to God a "moment to himself."

Bolt representatives say BBC has known for the past four years about Bolt's faith but never mention it.

What is Bolt's faith? Protestant? Evangelical? Catholic? Other? It's not entirely clear.

In Christianity Today's words, those close to Bolt say he "is a Bible-believing, God-honoring, Jesus-worshipping Christian. But other than crossing himself and offering silent prayers at the start of each race, he is relatively reserved about his faith."

Roman Catholics only make up a tiny fraction of Jamaica's religious population while Protestants, Evangelicals, Anglicans, and Rastafarians dominate.

Newsbusters also pointed out that all "Final Five" members of the gold-medal-winning U.S. women's gymnastics team are Catholic, Protestant/Evangelical, or Jewish and at least moderately outspoken about it, but their faith is never mentioned by the mainstream media.

Meanwhile, the mainstream media and political left continue to praise American fencer Ibtihaj Muhammad for standing up for her Muslim faith and wearing a hijab while competing. Numerous news outlets, such as USA Today, Time, the Los Angeles Times, ESPN, the Washington Post, and CBS News — among others — made a big deal about Muhammad making Olympic history before she had actually won anything.
