Back in Blog

After what seemed like a very short break after a great win over Canada on May 10 in Washington, D.C., the U.S. Women's National Team is back in action for a training camp at The Home Depot Center. This two-weeker will be the USA's final training before leaving for the Peace Queen Cup in South Korea on June 8. This being the beginning of a training camp, that of course means the team ran the Beep Test today. This is sort of a bad news, good news sort of situation. The bad news is that they had to run the Beep Test. The good news is that most everyone did extremely well, including Heather O'Reilly and Heather Mitts, who seemed to be Cyborg fitness machines sent from the future to dominate the Beep Test. Mitts sweated and sprinted to the best score by far and probably one of the best marks in recent U.S. WNT history. The other good news is that this was the last Beep Test of the year for the team! While of course the players will continue to work on fitness leading into the Olympics, the Beep Test is in the rear view mirror, at least for 2008.

Didn't Heather Mitts come back from ACL repair? Way to inspire all our daughters who have also suffered this injury!
