Greetings from Austrailia!!! We arrived on Monday morning (your Sunday morning) and check in to our hotel. It was a mighty long airplane ride!!! 15 hours!! I am here with the Open Water Director as we are the leads. Which means we arrive before the team to make sure everything is done right when they arrive. My duties when we arrived were to find several coffee shops and eateries and sort of worn them that there will be 100 extra people visiting in the area. Then I took a much needed nap and then out to dinner to explore the area.
We are right by Story Bridge which lights up at night and just down the river from Kangaroo Point. This is to our left and then you see the Skyline and beautiful Church just below. Our team room is on the top floor, this is the room where a lot the athletes gather for team time. I am very excited to be here and represent USA Swimming. We are here in Brisbane for TEAM CAMP until Sunday when we leave for Sydney for competition. GO USA
