Today was a BIG day! We departed the São Paulo training facility at 8am and made a beeline for the airport. Things ran remarkably smooth considering we expected the worst. Traffic can get very crazy but today it was on our side!

Arriving into Rio was picturesque. Beautiful blue sky's and 80 degrees Fahrenheit. The media was waiting for us and Bruno and Marcelo were welcomed like rock stars.

We headed to Brazilian headquarters where we were to pick up our Nike uniform. This was a special event, they really went above and beyond, the best uniform I have ever seen! It's nice to be on the home team!


After dinner we headed to the village, where we got our accreditation, something we must carry at all times.

Team Brazil is set up in the back of the village, but the back was reserved for the very best! Nice setup!!!

I bumped into coach Sergio Lopez in the dining hall (nice surprise) and the Australian team fresh from their camp in Auburn. I'll add some pictures of the dining facility tomorrow, it's huge!

Long day so bed now at 1:37am
