Rowing in Rio: Gear Arrived
July 30, 2016
After returning from breakfast, in the largest dining facility that I have ever seen, we were greeted by the Chef de Mission and given our gear boxes: hats, flip flops, sweat pants, polos, tees, ect. The highlight was hearing that the bed covers are a gift to take home with us.
We are all in better spirits after a full meal this morning. The afternoon involves moving to our permanent apartment down the hall, exchanging gear for different sizes, tracking down Emily’s oars, and going to the course to rig the brand new Empacher single. Training resumes tomorrow at 0700 hours.
