Well, o and I aren't the champions but we met some today! Tech has 3 track/field athletes that qualified for the 2012 London games. This is huge!!
With Chelsea Hayes. Long jump. Competing for the good old US of A. Originally from new Orleans. Still a student at tech.
With Jason Morgan. Competing for his home country Jamaica. Discus thrower. He currently lives and trains in little old Ruston.
The third one Ayana Alexander wasn't able to be there. She's competing for her home country of Trinidad and Tobago where she is currently training.
We got to sign all of their good luck banners that they will take with them to London. O was adamant about signing her own name!
O showing off her autographs.
We're super excited about these Olympians right here in our own backyard.
After that we had lunch with Jenny and Jackie at the new counter culture in the intramural center. I love having special days like this with Olivia. She won't necessarily remember it but she can now say she met some bonafied Olympians! These are possibly my first Olympians (that compete individually) to meet.
