2,447 ACROSS

Needless to say, during world championships, the players have a lot of down time as outside of training, rest is key. The players fill that time with many different activities (remember Lori Chalupny and Heather O'Reilly are knitting), but keeping in line with a favorite pastime of many of the U.S. players -- crossword puzzles -- U.S. General Manager Cheryl Bailey brought a special gift to China: The World's Largest Crossword Puzzle! The list of clues fills a small book. While it's seemingly impossible to fill out this whole thing before the end of the Olympics, don't doubt the wordsmith's on the team. Without crossword devotee Abby Wambach, it will be a bit more difficult, but the players already have a few of the words filled in. Below Stephanie Cox contributes a few words to the mission.

Whoa seriously I could go blind doing that puzzle! But nonetheless I love how the black and white squares make up a nice pattern (if seen from far)....!
