New York, Sept 12 (THAINDIAN NEWS) 25 year old tennis star from Britain Andy Murray won the US open championship on Monday night. He also has a gold medal from the London 2012 Olympics.

The tennis champion has his God to thank for attaining these championships as he would not have made it to 2012 were it not for God. Murray was involved in a mass killing that happened in a school where he went 16 years ago. The mass killing which took place at his school left 16 children of the ages five and six and one adult dead. The killer, Thomas Hamilton walked in to the school with guns in 1996 and killed the children then killed himself.

Murray was only eight years old when the shooting took place and he managed to scurry away and hide himself. This mass shooting became one of the worst firearm incidents in history after the one that took place in Columbine High School in the US where the same thing had happened before.

Murray was walking towards the gym but went and hid under the headmaster’s desk when the incident took place. He never really talks about the incident much but he has mentioned it in his autobiography.
