Day 1 and 2 London 2012

Back again at the Olympic Village and I tell you it NEVER gets old.  Yesterday we went through processing and got a lot of gear from Nike and Ralph Lauren.  Unfortunately a lot of the clothing didn’t fit, boo!  But tomorrow I will go to exchange some things if our schedule permits:-) Today we had our first practice.  Not a bad day at the office but I know we will be better tomorrow.  It is amazing how the team is better just by making the little plays and focusing on details like coverage ball, passing free ball to the target, sealing the net, none setter setting a hittable ball. I love this game! GO USA!

    Hi! I’m at Ruth’s camp! I was wondering out of the 12 players on the roster have never played in the Olympics before and they’re name and position! And what type of serve do you have? Thanks! Please let me know as soon as possible!

    Hi Hanna, How great you are at Ruth’s camp… Pay attention you will learn lots! There are 7 first time Olympians on the team. I will challenge you to figure our who are the veterans and who are the first time Olympians. Do a little homework, I’d bet you will also learn their positions as well. I have a standing float serve from near the end line, although I have also served jump float and way way back in the day jump top spin. Cheers! GO USA!

    GO USA! I always try to catch the matches and have watched you in the last 3 trips to the Olympics. I remembered how great you were in high school (I was a freshman and only at WHS for a year) and it’s just awesome that you’ve done so great with your athletic talent!
