Olympic Training

November 16, 2009

Came across a pretty interesting video from Time.com, showing some of the training activities of US Athletes:

Couple of observations:

- Pretty sure the splashpool and sliding track are from Lake Placid.

- Nothing makes great Curling ice like having Short Track Speed Skaters train on it.

- I wish I could wander around all day on my roller blade skis….sniper rifle slung over my shoulder...

- Couple of really good camera angles for Ski-Jumping that highlight how its almost more like falling off a cliff than it is making a horizontal jump.

At least the speed skaters aren't actually skating ON the curling ice... they are skating around it.
