Carrie Touches Down in Beijing
Carrie and her team flew in to Beijing Friday and immediately after she landed Carrie went from the airport to the Olympic Village. By Saturday Carrie left the Village and got settled in her hotel near the Shunyi Olympic Rowing-Canoeing Park, which is 45 minutes outside of Beijing. Although some of the USA Canoe / Kayak team members got to do some site-seeing, Carrie has been focusing on the Games.
For the next few days Carrie’s time will either be spent on the water or at the hotel. Kayaking competitions start tomorrow afternoon at 3:30, but Carrie doesn't compete until Tuesday.
