Sunday, August 10th
Today Melanie competes at 3 PM Beijing time. We are all ready to attend the event. We are wearing our Team Roach T-shirts, have our American flags to wave and cheers all ready to yell. Three years of renewed training and it all happens in seconds.
Melanie feels great and is hoping to break her personal record. There are 10 women lifting in her weight class.
After the meet we will all gather for a Peking duck dinner. Joining us is Federal Way chiropractor, Greg Summers, and his family. Greg is a volunteer for several of our area athletes and travels the world to help Olympians as he can. He is a great guy!
We are now down to just a little more than two hours until the event. I will check in tomorrow when we will resume activities with Children's Hope International and climb THE WALL!
