Sanya Richards-Ross of the U.S. celebrates winning the gold medal in the women’s 400m final during the London 2012 Olympic Games at the Olympic Stadium August 5, 2012.

Sanya Richards-Ross has four Olympic gold medals but she knows that none of those would be possible without God.

As she prepares for the Summer Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil this August, the track and field athlete is reflecting about her big wins at the 2012 Olympic Games in London. She posted an image of herself after winning the women’s 400m final with this message inscribed on the photo: “one plus God is always a majority.”

“When I reflect on this victory I know it was only the grace of God….,” the 31-year-old Christian runner wrote on Instagram. “All good things come from above #blessed #OnAMission #RoadToRio #believe.”

Richards-Ross, the wife of NFL free agent Aaron Ross, has competed at three Olympic Games: Athens in 2004, Beijing in 2008 and London in 2012. Now that she is preparing for her fourth Olympics and ending her career, Richards-Ross has a different mindset.

“This year, I’m really training from a place of love, hope and anticipation,” she said. “I really hope this will be my swan song, and I’ll be able to leave the sport on a really high note.”
