Last Stop Before We Cross the Pond
Hey Guys! Team USA is making our way from Vichy, France to London but I wanted to share some experiences from our time at the domestic training camp in Knoxville, TN. You see, there are two stops on our way to London. The first was in Knoxville, at the University of Tennessee. This camp was a great team building experience. It brought us together as we prepared to “fly across the pond”. On July 12th, the media came into the aquatics center. By the time we arrived at the pool for our training session, people were lined up for blocks around the pool to watch that mornings training session. Fortunately, we had a recovery practice. During taper we make sure that we never get too broken down, so after the lactate set the previous night it was nice to flush. Knoxville was amazingly supportive and enthusiastic and it was nice to see fans supporting the USA.
