Hi MYSL skiers!
I want to give you the inside scoop on the Olympics, and let you know what it’s like to get to race at them! First of all, travel to Russia took a lot of steps; flying, checking in at customs, taking a bus to scan our bags, riding another bus, taking a gondola, then a shuttle…it was a long travel day! But once we made it to our village, we were able to settle in and we didn’t travel very much after that, since we lived on the top of a mountain. We had everything we needed up there! There was a huge dining hall with food stations from around the world, where they served food typical to Asia, the USA, Russia, and Central Europe. If you were thirsty, there were Coke machines around the village, and each athlete had a special key that let us get drinks for free. There was a huge game room for the athletes with pool, table tennis, Wii and lots of board games, as well as a disco, post office and store.
