OLYMPIC DOUBLE GOLD MEDAL WINNER KAMIL STOCH PROCLAIMS HIS CATHOLIC FAITH

Kamil Wiktor Stoch (born 25 May 1987 in Zakopane) is a Polish ski jumper. He won Gold twice at the  2014 Olympics in Sochi.  On January 26, 2013 he became the joint Polish ski flying record holder with a jump of 232.5."I always make a Sign of the Cross before my jumps. Since I was little. It is not because I am afraid, but it is a symbol of faith. Every jump I dedicate to the Lord God. I am not ashamed of that." Reporters asked Stoch if he missed Mass since the event was being held on a Sunday. He answered: "I went to Mass on Saturday evening". Kamil Stoch was born in Zakopane, Poland, to Krystyna and Bronisław Stoch. He has two older sisters – Anna (born 1983) and Natalia (born 1985). He was granted a Masters in Physical Education. He married Ewa Bilan on the 7th of August 2010. In one interview Stoch said: "I would like to thank the Lord God for everything that has occurred and everything that will occur in the future."

Stoch said, "When something does not go right, I put myself under the protective wings of the Lord God. Then I know He is next to me, I feel it. I pray that none of the athletes be harmed in our competitions. That I will know how to be joyful in victory and with dignity accept defeat. I thank the Lord God for everything, because I owe everything to Him." He cherishes the message of the late Pope John Paul II: "You must demand of yourselves even when others will not demand it of you."
He also proclaimed: "I believe in the following rule 'If God is in first place, then everything is in its right place.' Everyday I feel the presence and help of God. That I wake up in the morning and have strength and health to do what I do, as well as joy and satisfaction that it brings me, must come from the Lord. God always helps me, he puts on my road people of kindness. I thank the Lord God for all the difficult moments, because after them I become stronger. I believe, that if a person works hards, believes in what he is doing, has a positive outlook on the world and trusts in God, then there are no impossible things! As long as you are fighting, you are victorious."
