Camp Begins

So today was our first day of national team camp.  Most of us spent the day doing basics and getting used to the equipment at the OTC.  We basically treated today as preparation for tomorrow as we are having an intra-squad (practice meet) with some judges coming in.  This will be a tune-up for myself and the four other guys who are competing in Japan in a few weeks (you can find the participant list for the meet here: Japan Cup Roster).  Tomorrow will also be good practice for the guys who are competing at qualifiers as well as USA Championships in August.  I know some of the guys are trying new tricks in their routines so tomorrow’s intra-squad should be interesting.

After workout, about half of us got together and went and watched the new Transformers movie.  Truthfully, I didn’t think it lived up to the first one but I will admit that it was entertaining.  Going to the movie was also good because it allowed us to get off the training center complex for a bit and just relax.  Anyway, better hit the sack so I can rest up for tomorrow’s practice meet!

    They’re basically just checking how ready we are so I don’t think that there are going to be any official results from the practice meet.
