ARE YOU READY?????
Things are really starting to cook here at the 2007 World Championships in Cali, Colombia! Right now as the towns people and athletes arrive, they have entertainment going on. Currently there is a Colombian Swing dance group that is young and very good.
As I type, Ms. Mariah Richardson-USA is walking out for presentation of her 300-meter Silver medal. Colombia took 1st and 3rd !!
The first race of tonight will be the 15K Elimination Race. I don't know about you, but I'm itching to know who will be in these races.
The warm-ups do not give anything away as it is required (by Team USA) that each athlete keep their legs loose by skating every warm-up except the warm-ups that skaters must qualify to, as those warm-ups have a specified number of skaters that are allowed out on the track.
So your guess is as good as mine right now!! Team USA looks good for Team USA. I know those of us here wish them all the very best and know they are giving 100%.
I have the official 1000-meter FINAL events:
12 China Taipei
30 Alemania (Germany)
86 USA - Colin Thomas
43 Alemania (Germany)
67 USA - Brittany Bowe
23 China Taipei
70 USA - Jessica Smith
120 USA - Joey Mantia
33 China Taipei
96 New Zealand
29 China Taipei
95 New Zealand
I promise to give you the names to at least the top 3 in each event and more if time permits! Hope you are watching... Joey is coming up next to receive his award. CHOW...
