Saturday presented another long day and more challenges and a guy who never showed up to do interviews. Fun.
Well, Friday wasn’t a great day with soccer bowing out and U.S. men’s basketball struggling against Serbia. But a new type of hot dog helped even the day out.
Thursday was an interesting day. I ended up getting a fencing story together despite issues getting into the mixed zone. And I learned that cycling track is one heck of a sport.
Wednesday was quite the interesting day. I learned how to write a sailing story and watched Brazil finally look like the team everyone thought they were.
After three days of getting up early, I got to sleep in Tuesday. And it felt nice.
Monday saw the clouds roll in and calmer winds, which meant it was time for rowing once again.
So windy conditions equaled a no-go for rowing on Sunday. But watching Serena Williams in tennis was a blast.
Always remember the sunscreen, especially if you’re covering rowing. Oh, and write the story first before trying to get back to the Olympic Park. Lessons learned on the first day of the Olympics.
It’s finally here. After much anticipation, the opening ceremony of the Rio Olympics went on as planned Friday night. Unfortunately we weren’t there, but we had the next best thing.
Thursday was the chill day we all needed. But sitting in on the IOC and USA Basketball press conference certainly made it interesting.
