I started my day off at Gymnastics to shoot the women’s team all around final. China and USA were projected to go head to head for the gold and they certainly lived up to the predictions.

Started by day off with a very healthy breakfast at McDonalds. One good thing about the Olympics is it doesn’t matter if you eat every meal at unhealthy fast food, you won’t gain weight with the amount of running around and work you’re doing.

The day began with me waking up at 7:55 needing to be at beach volleyball for a 9am USA Match. I threw my clothes on and was out the door at 8:05. I had just missed the shuttle to the media center, where my gear was, so I hopped a cab there since the next shuttle wasn’t until 8:30.  When I got there I quickly grabbed my gear and hopped another cab for the 20 minute ride to the venue. While we were driving it began to rain, horray!

Been in China for a week now and am finally acclimated to the busy schedule as well as the culture shock. Now that Im as settled in as I’m gonna get I have no excuses not to perform at my best with the images I’m shooting. Just like the best athletes in the world are here it is basically similar with photographers as I find myself shooting alongside the best sports photogs in the world. Just knowing that is motivation enough to give it my all.

Today was a very busy and tiring day but also very productive. With sight seeing as well as shooting some venue features I put in about 14 hours. After waking up around 8 a.m. I hung out in the third floor lobby (where the internet is) and worked on some images from the previous day as well as surfing the web to catch up on the latest news back in the states.

            After a 12 hour flight from San Francisco I am finally in Beijing.

I got very lucky with the flight, due to an hour delay and having to rego through security to access the international terminal I made it to the plane right when they began boarding. When I arrived there is when I received my seat assignment so I figured I would be totally screwed.

    So after over a year of planning and waiting I am about to leave the country for 3 weeks to cover the worlds biggest sporting event. One would think I’d be incredibly excited but to tell you the truth I feel like puking!
