Pump You Up

The U.S. team has yet to kick a soccer ball in Beijing as the players are being given a few days to recover from the long travel and get their legs nice and fresh before starting training on the field. To help that process, the team hit the weight room this afternoon for a brisk strength session and got a good sweat on. The USOC has set up a first rate weight room facility here at BNU and the players enjoyed running through their various stations to some pulsating beats on the sound system. Tomorrow will be spent mostly traveling to and from the Great Wall, but the team will have its first on-field session on Sunday morning, going for about two hours, before departing for Qinhuangdao later that day.
