planning for Beijing

The Canadian Men’s Gymnastics team trained in Beijing June 30-July 12th as part of the team preparation plan for the next Olympics. Kyle Shewfelt, 2004 Olympic Champion on Floor, sent us some photos of the Chinese National Training Centre.

The US Olympic Team got advice from USOC Coaching and Sport Sciences: ANY WHERE, ANY TIME, WE WILL BE READY: PLANNING FOR BEIJING

I think Beijing (official website) may well be the best Olympics ever. Certainly the Chinese athletes will be very well prepared. But can they handle the added psychological pressure of competing in front of the home town crowd?
