I’m at short track speed skating again inside the Iceberg. Evan Bates and the Shibutanis are with me. The Russian guards didn’t want to let us in at first even though we were told that figure skating athletes and staff can get into the building with just our credential and don’t need a ticket since we share the same building (and visa versa). Fortunately another guard who new this came up and let us in (with the first guard still yelling in Russian that we needed a “teekit!”)
We saw the 500 meter quarter finals, the men’s 5000 meter relay semifinals and the women’s 500 meter final. I won’t tell you the results because it will all be on tv back home several hours from now (it’s 3 in the morning in Colorado).
The short track relay is always exciting!
