Happy July 4 from the Pan American Games!!!

After catching a red-eye flight, we arrived to Toronto!! Can’t think of a better way to spend the 4th of July then at Pan American Games processing with Team USA. This competition comes every four years in the year before the Olympics. The 2011 Guadalajara event was my favorite meet ever.

Processing involves checking in and picking up some official USA gear. Here is a picture of us in our new Nike swag:


After processing we headed to the Village where we completed a quick debriefing with Team USA staff. The village is like a mini Olympic village. There are several high rises housing athletes, coaches, staff, etc.

This giant decal is an example of all the patriotic decorations around:


My personal favorite part is the dining hall! The food selection is excellent, so many fresh, healthy options.


After lunch we had a great first training session at the pool.

Much more to come!!
