From Beijing

Sophie has finished training in Hong Kong & arrived at the NZ Quarters for accomodation in the Olympic Village in Beijing!
They've sent a few photo's through of Sophie with the other Paralympians from New Zealand.

The Accomodation Block for the New Zealand Competitors

A Close up of the foyer, the poster on the left - That's Sophie!!!

I'm guessing this is the community area - & there she is again ;o)

This is Cameron Leslie - one of the swim team members.

And here's our girl Sophie - a true rose among the thorns. That's Roly Crichton, her coach, with his back towards the camera.

Go, Sophie! We are rooting for you!

Wow!! I wish them all the best of luck.

Sadly, our South African team is having a hard time just trying to get their kit. It's a shame!! OUR Olympic organisers should be ashamed of themselves.

I wonder if Sophie will be competing against our swimmer Natalie.

Good luck!!
