Are there any notable atheist athletes who give the glory of their championships to their hard work and determination?

Often we see athletes giving God the glory. The most recent I can think of is Ray Lewis in his recent interview. I wanted to know if there was ever such a successful athlete who was open about his own hard work and determination, or was openly atheist.

Or is there so much emotion and having high hopes in professional sports that with out the belief of something above oneself it is impossible to be a champion?

I’m thinking Tom Brady might be atheist I don’t recall him thanking a God of any sort during an interview. And please I don’t mean to be offensive here, there is no end goal to my question, just one out of curiosity, I know how these religious battles can get so again I don’t mean to be offensive to anyone’s belief system
