It’s been another awesome week of adventure and cultural immersion. I went to the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games Stadium and saw the place that Michael Phelps started his Olympic career in the aquatic center. It so surreal to watch a swim meet in a place that had so many spotlights pointed at the place I sat in just 13 years ago. I saw an Olympic gold medalist, Akihiro Yamaguchi, compete in breaststroke and complete 100 meters in 1 minute, which if you are swimmer and understand the sport you know is crazy fast!
be too hard to make that happen! I can’t believe I get to see another country! I feel blessed for all the opportunities this experience has given me so far.
