“I’m just so excited; we are blessed. I’m grateful to God,” she continued, adding that it was an honor to be able to run and medal with Ali and Castlin.

Additionally, Rollins shares her beliefs on social media such as Twitter when she commented that she wanted to break world records and win gold medals.  She additionally commented that she wants to be noted as “the athlete who glorified God by reaching my full potential”.

Rollins Twitter bio references her love of Christ and deep faith by stating:

“Glorifying God through the talent He blessed me with! Professional Hurdler … God is Love.”
