So off we went to London...
and guess who was on our flight...the team from Belarus (this is only a few of them)
I cannot tell you how excited the kiddos were to actually meet Olympians! So cool :)
Memoo and Luke arrived the day after us, and it was good to be reunited with them
Our first few days in London, we toured the city! (hopefully more on that to come later) The third day we had tickets for track and field in the stadium. Of course the day began with face paint, cause if we were going to do this...we were going to do it all the way-or at least some of us were!
and others painted their nails
here are some of the athletes walking into the stadium
According to the papers, we witnessed the best night for USA Track and Field in 20 years! We saw the Women's long jump finals, the Women's 200 meter final, the Men's 110 hurdles final, the Women's 400 hurdles final , the high jump and the 400 meters of the Men's decathlon and the Men's 200 meter semi finals...yes-we saw Usain Bolt!
He is one fast and charismatic dude!
We also saw the javelin qualification rounds, and when the athletes were done throwing, little remote controlled mini-coopers would retrieve the javelins...
How cool is that!
This is Britney Reese, who won the Gold medal for the US!
(Olympic Fever... Part 2 will be of the Women's Final soccer match!)
