0

I think everyone who visits this site is anxiously awaiting the start of the track and field competition at the Olympics. While we wait, here’s some interesting reading from the wife of one of our contributing members. Against high odds, Erica Bartolina made the Olympic squad in the women’s pole vault, beating back some of the legends of the event for a trip to Beijing. If you want some interesting insight on what it’s like to be over there check out her blog. Congrats to Erica on making the team and good luck in Beijing.
