ON THE GO.....

So the past few days have been somewhat of a roller coaster. Right now as I type, I am at home in The Bahamas, on Paradise Island. I don’t know if any of you have ever been here before, but I’m staying at the Atlantis Hotel.


This hotel is world renowned for it’s grandeur and beauty and it’s casinos and restaurants and pretty much everything in between. This is the view from my room. Pretty nice!!!


I am down here for a week of celebrations and functions that my entire Olympic teammates and myself will be attending. Every year, the government flies us all home and we attend numerous events from church services, to breakfasts, luncheons, and dinners, schools, Government house, Parliament, parades and to some of the other family islands. Tonight we will be going on a boat cruise around the island. I’m sure it’s going to be loads of fun and I’m looking forward to it.

On Friday last week, I attended a function at my alma mater, Stanford University where all of Stanford’s Beijing Olympians were being honored. There were 48 current and former Stanford athletes who competed in Beijing! We won 25 medals, 8 of which were gold and represented 9 countries. That’s pretty impressive in my opinion! Anyway, so we had this event on Friday afternoon and I was one of the two athletes that they asked to speak. Ted Robinson, one of the NBC announcers during the Olympics was the host of the event.

I was rather surprised that I was asked because we had so many medalists, etc. Nevertheless, I took the privilege of speaking to heart and gave what apparently was one of the best speeches that I have to date and I’m just glad that I was able to touch so many people with my words and my experiences.

On Saturday night, I went to a “track party” back in LA. It was a lot of fun. Maurice Greene, former world record holder in the men’s 100m and current Dancing with the Stars contestant was there showing off some of his moves:) and I had fun hanging out with some new and old friends.




I was hurting in the morning though when it came time for me to catch my 6:30am flight here to Nassau. Suffice to say, I don’t even know when the plane took off because I was asleep before I sat in my seat.

Anyway, the next few days are going to be extremely hectic so I might not be able to do any updates. We’ll see I guess…..
