Australia Day One
It is Thursday here. Started out the day with a walk around Olympic Park. I am staying at the ibis hotel in Olympic Park.Got to meet with Kenneth Graham who is head of Sports Science and Applied Research at NSWIS. He blew me away. I am going to really pick this guys brain. It is so great to get around applied sport scientist, who are willing to dialog with coaches. That is a real strength of their system over here. I am going to dinner with Kenneth tonight, really looking forward to getting more in depth on some of the things he spoke about today. The photos are of the Olympic Stadium from my hotel. The photo below is of the sole remaining track. Originally there were two practice tracks and the track in the stadium. The track has been removed from the stadium. Overall they have done a fine job of maintaining the facilities and continuing to use the facilities.
