Food Truck - Team Singapore

Finally we have all the swimmers from Team Singapore that will race at the Olympic Games here at Surrey University.

Team Singapore has done a tremendous job to have the best scenario possible for our swimmers to get ready to perform at the highest level possible. We even have our own Chef that makes all of our meals at the food truck in the picture below. I can tell you that so far the food is delicious and very well balance for our athletes. We also have a Nutritionist that is working with the Chef to make sure everything is right.

Very impressed with the way they have organized this trip to provide the best situation possible for the athletes.

Now we just need to keep training, resting and believing and we will have great results in a couple of weeks. The swimmers so far seem in great spirits.

Thank you Team Singapore!

Moving into the Dorms :-(

These first four days we have been staying at the Holiday Inn right here in Gilford next to the University. Today we have moved to the University dorms :-(

The dorms and the area are nice but there are a couple not so good things:

* No more desserts.
* No more TV.

Like I always tell my swimmers "find the positive of the negative." So maybe these not so good things become good things like:

* No more dessert, No More Extra Pounds :-)
* No more TV, more time to catch up with lost hours of sleep :-) and more time to do club/high school work :-(.

Well joking aside this will be a good opportunity so I spend more quality time with Joseph and the other members of Team Singapore. As coaches we are always looking to keep making the relationships with the swimmers stronger, and now we have the perfect opportunity to make our partnership stronger.

No excuses to fall asleep standing up on deck anymore :-) No that I ever did that.

In the picture Joseph and Aloysius at the local supermarket buying extra groceries for the dorm.

No Will Power - Dessert One of the Pleasures of Life

Here you have the proof of why it's not difficult for me to keep a beautiful round shape ;-)

After a great dinner I could not resist but to visit twice to the dessert table and have four pieces of cake. I guess I am lucky that I don't have to compete anymore. The problem is that if I keep this up my new x shirts from Team Singapore will be too small hahaha... ;-)

I feel for Joseph that he had to watch me eat the cakes while is not allowed to eat any hahaha...

The power of food defeats my will power to lose weight anytime anywhere, and today you have the proof right here.

Tomorrow we will be moving into the University dorms and "there will be no temptation".

Living the Dream!!!

Surrey University - Beautiful Place Great People

I am honestly very happy with the training site that Singapore has chosen to prepare for the 2012 Olympic Games.

The Sports Facilities here at the Surrey University Sports Center are very good, but most important the people working here are amazing and very professional. Also very well organized and managed.

The center had even a very nice and big Starbucks ;-)

Well time for Lunch now.

TYR - Always in Front

Very happy with the way Joseph swam st practice today. Still twenty one more before he swims but looking pretty good. We will keep taking one day at a time.

Today the nutritionist and the massage therapist for team Singapore arrived to Surrey to take care of the team.

Just wanted to share this picture of Joseph while doing the Roger exercises and give some PR to our team sponsor ;-)
