Seven Day Adventist Minister Mistaken for Olympian
Seven Day Adventist minister Richard Daly, has admitted in a news article on the Adventist News Network that he often gets mistaken for a British Olympian. The 45 year old pastor is working at the Olympic village and offering pastoral care to those working around the site. The website writes:
Daly said he’s often confused for an athlete in Olympic Park and in surrounding shops. It’s because of his fit physique and a white Team Great Britain coat, which he bought at a gift shop to guard against the rainy drizzle. He’s even reluctantly signed a few autographs to oblige fans who refuse to believe he’s not on the national team.
He also noted how many of the people he spoke to had never heard of his denomination, ‘Seventh-avenue church?’ said Kaye Wren from Birmingham, asking Daly of his religious affiliation, before admitting she hadn’t heard of the Seventh-day Adventist denomination.
