What's with all this praying? Isn't seeking Divine Intervention on your behalf just another form of artificial performance enhancement..? .... unless praying for all the others to do badly...? ... which is even more unsportsmanlike!

I call for a ban on all performance enhancing supplications.

Maybe he prays not to hurt himself. Perhaps he prays for all the racers to be safe. "God is no respecter of persons" and wouldn't help one over another in a race, or whacking a ball, etc. But perhaps players who point up after a good play are just exercising "In every thing give thanks."

The words are French, but the mindset is American.

Tried "match" and "race" and neither worked. French answer seems to only accept course.
