Pump You Up

Today was another busy day for the U.S. Women’s National Team. Half the team trained on the field in the morning while the other half did a weight workout at gym near the team hotel. In the afternoon, the groups flip-flopped. In the morning, the group that was lifting had to move outside the gym to do their workout as their wasn’t room inside, making for an odd sight for any passers-by who would have seen a dozen athletic women in Nike U.S. National Team gear pumping some iron. Said forward Heather O’Reilly: “It was like muscle beach out there.” We’re pretty sure she was joking, although O’Reilly does have some impressive pipes. Tomorrow is another double-day, although the entire 26 players in camp will train together in both sessions as head coach Pia Sundhage continues the process of selecting the 20-player Algarve Cup roster.
