7:20am CDT – We are settled into our hotel in Beijing. The group from Madison met early on Wednesday, April 27 and joined up with the rest of the team members at O’Hare. Getting 17 people and 34 pieces of luggage through the check-in process pretty much took us up to the time to board the plane. We entertained ourselves plenty on the thirteen hour flight and have had dinner and are ready for some sleep! Tomorrow we head to the Shunyi Olympic Rowing-Canoeing Park to get on the water.
Next Up: A day of training at the ski site before two days of competition.
