While our team was training in Sydney before World Chamionships we stayed in the Olympic Park hotel and played at the Olympic swim venue we played in for the final game seven years ago. It was surreal to be there again after so many years.
We found the Olympic Couldron which had once proudly burned the Olympic flame had been turned into a fountain. It was hot. There was water. So we cooled off and took a team picture surrounded by the cascading water.....I like to think the water had some lucky or positive energy because we played so well after that. Maybe I should have brought some home for use later.
We found these plauqes surrounding the fountain. There was one for every medal winner from the 2000 Games. All 13 of our names were there! I am so proud of our team. GO USA!
