Getting some results up before I get booted out of my hotel room and make my way back home.
Oddly enough, this is the only picture so far…and Jordan for some mysterious reason didn’t advance. =(
Guess the photographer showed up at the beginning, took one shot and left! LOL. Hey, I’m not complaining, I’m just sayin’… it’s better than nothing! =)
Katherine, Travis and J.R. all made it to the finals of the 1500m. US Ladies advance to the finals for the Relay (Alyson Dudek, Kimberly Derrick, Lana Gehring and Katherine Reutter- Allison Baver sat this one out). They go up against Korea, China and Canada.
Koreans swept the field in the individual 1500m races for both men and women 1-2-3
…and Meng Wang didn’t advance in the Semi Finals! (write this date down in your calendar! How often does THAT happen?) O_O
