Emotional Day 4

A big day on the lake, which is a most fantastic location for the rowing, so central, and fabulous views with Christ the Redeemer overlooking us and peering out of the clouds every morning.  There were some fabulous results and some heartbreaking results for competitors and their families.  To be close up to these kids when it doesn't go as expected is hard to watch.  Four years of training, six days a week is  something we don't really get when we watch the telly.  The Kiwi supporters are getting bigger and louder every day.  Everyone taking in other events but pretty focused on rowing until it finishes on Saturday.   Spent the afternoon sightseeing up the famous Sugarloaf rock, huge, awesome and incredible views of the outstanding beauty of Rio de Janiero.  Awesome to be here.
