Sachem alum and Olympian Maria Michta is finally in London and currently partaking in the opening ceremony.
Yesterday she blogged shortly after arriving to relate her experience to date. From a possibly contagious stewardess, to trying on her Nike shwag, Michta has already had a hectic time of it over there:
"By the time I was done with trying on all my new Nike USOC gear it was dinner time. I met up with TEAMmate Rachel (from Canada) and we sampled some more foreign cuisine. It was great to get to catch up with her as I have not seen her personally since leaving Germany early. We have traveled to so many competitions together over the years as we have moved up from the Junior age group US vs CAN dual meet competitions, now to the highest level of athletic competition: The Olympic Games! Pretty awesome, and our Olympic experience has only just begun!
Off for my re-fitting of my opening ceremony tops! Will update post later to include some pictures!"
Patch will continue to follow Michta's blog and give updates on her whereabouts during the Olympics.
