Hec and Chelle at Beijing Olympics

Hec and Chelle at Bird's Nest National Stadium for Beijing Olympics

The 2008 Beijing Olympics were RIDICULOUSLY awesome – unbelievable and a definite must if you care at all about sports. We saw Usain Bolt run the 100m heats, sat 17 rows up from the track for the long distance finals, saw the world record in women’s pole vault set, hung out at the 38km run of the women’s marathon, stood up for 8 medal ceremonies, went up to the Great Wall and visited Tiananmen Square, the Forbidden City, and the Summer Palace, and of course watched both Male and Female Triathlons. Does my head banner mean something to you? On the left you know have GOLD medalist from Australia Emma Snowsill and on the right you have me with Simon Whitfiled SILVER medalist (to add to his Gold from Sidney).

I had the opportunity to journal for slowtwitch so sorry if you expected more on this site, but I couldn’t pass up writing for the World’s Largest TRIATHLON website, so please head over to slowtitch.com’s main page for my entire Live From the Beijing Olympics series.
