"It is everything I thought it would be; being the Olympic champion, it definitely is an amazing feeling.
And I give all the glory to God. It's kind of a win-win situation. The glory goes up to him and the blessings fall down on me," Douglas testified in the interview.
Later she also took to social networking site Twitter to continue her praise. She tweeted: "Let all that I am praise the LORD; may I never forget the good things He does for me."
