The 2014 Sochi Olympics has gotten me thinking a lot about my Olympic experience, and I realized I've hadn't shared a lot of my photos from the Olympics. So here it goes!
The view of the Olympic village from our room
Flags outside of the dining hall in the village
This is what the dining hall looks like. It is huge and has every type of food you could ever imagine. It's really a foodie's dream come true
Specialized Fate with the special electric Olympic paint job
This is literally what the road to the Olympics looks like
Georgia wins bronze! What an amazing day!
We are both happy about having a medal for US mountain biking!
Team USA house. Every athlete that wins a medal goes here to celebrate. They are honored up on stage and give an honorary medal to their coach
Thanks Mom and Dad for being a big part of why I made it to the Olympics
Celebrating that bronze at the USA house
At every Olympics, P&G creates a house where there's food and it's a great place to meet up with family. They also have a salon there where you can get your hair done and a total makeover. It's in the salon where Missy Franklin and I realized we were twinsies
The P&G house has a board where friends and family can write words of encouragement.
This is what my mom wrote on 'thank you mom' wall
Jojo sampling all different cuisines in the athlete's village dining hall. It's so hard to decide what to eat!
Just a fraction of the choices in the dining hall
Yes, it's true. There is a McDonald's in the athletes village
This is a delicious doughnut. I don't know what country it's from and I haven't had anything like it since
Team USA keeps track of the medals in the USA lodging office. Just on normal printed out sheets of paper…I would expect it would be more official than that
Jojo and I get mad ups to touch the Olympic rings
Sculpture in the athlete's village
Even the rings were in the London train station
London airport built a separate departure terminal for the athletes. This guy was there to send us off
There was also a classic London phone booth
This was the athlete's Olympic memory tree. I wrote my best memory of the games was walking into the Olympic stadium for the closing ceremonies
This is what hometown support looks like. The Snowflake Chocolates ladies cheering me on
This is all of the Olympic clothing laid out. Amazing.
