Steve Munatones is in Beijing ready to cover the final FINA open water qualifier
Steve wrote me this morning telling me he is in Beijing at the Shunyi Rowing-Canoeing Park but he cannot get through the internet firewall of China to access his blog. He does have access to email and may set up a twitter account or he may have another solution for hourly updates. He will let me know when he can.
Today he mentioned that the weather is windy but the water surface is remarkably flat. He did mention that the air quality is a bit sketchy.
Kirsten Groome and Chloe Sutton will be swimming to see which American will qualify for Beijing.
These wonderful renderings come from the official site of the Beijing games. The above renderings feature the main stands and the terminal tower where the rowing and the open water event will take place. [Link]
