Day 1 BlogToday we started off the trip by driving to Toronto on the charter bus. The group had to go through the US/Candadian border. We arrived at the Toronto airport and the whole crew made it through security with no problems. We grabbed a bite to eat at the airport before the long flight and boarded the plane. It was a night flight so most of us tried to sleep as much as possible. Everyone is very excited to get into Italy!

Day 2 Blog: After we landed, team USA headed straight to the Olympic training center for our first workout in Italy. We took public transportation via bus and subway. We got to practice with some of the guys on the Italian National team. Carmelo, a wrestler on the Italian National team, ran practice and we got to experience an elite level workout. Then we headed to the hotel and finished up with a true Italian meal.

Day 3 Blog: We got a second workout in at the Olympic Training Center, played soccer with the italian wrestling team and then we took a tour around Rome. We visited many interesting places such as Piazza Venezia, the Trevi Fountain and the Pantheon. After the tour, we got another tasty italian dinner.
