It has been a long four years but the day has finally come when it was time i headed to my third olympics. I have spent the last month on the road training in europe so i wanted to make sure i got to Beijiing well in advance to get ready for my event.
i got to beijing two days ago and the city is buzzing with "olympic fever." after a long and grueling flight it was a relief getting to the athletes village which is top of the line and very comfortable.
It is an amazing feeling to be in a place that is buzzing with world class athletes and everyone soaking up the experience but yet all there with one big purpose---- the ever elusive "gold medal"
It is definitely motivating rubbing shoulders with your peers who are all well established in their fields and also with your countrymen a lot of whom you meet for the first time. There is definitely a comraderie in your designated housing blocks which is an experience that one only feels at the Games.
Tomorrow is going to be my first practice since i am still on european time and have only managed 5 hours of sleep in the last couple of days. This is probably a mixture of jet lag and the excitement of actually being at the greatest show on Earth. However i think the tiredness has finally caught up and adrenaline worn off a little and so i am now off to have a great night's sleep.
Have a big day tomorrow with practice and all pre match routines.
