Olympic Training Center

Since the summer olympics will be beginning soon, we thought we would make a visit to the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs.

In front of the center was this beautiful metal sculpture.

We went inside and waited for the next tour.  Tours are given every 30 minutes.  Our guide was a member of the baseball team which unfortunately will not compete in the Olympics, since baseball has been eliminated as an olympic sport.  We walked outside towards the different training complexes.

We went into the shooting complex and someone was in there practicing.  Our tour began at noon which wasn't probably the best time to go since many of the athletes were gone to lunch.  The swim team had left this morning for the olympic trials.

This is the weight training complex.

There was no one in the swim center, so it was dark and I wasn't able to get a picture.

Before we left, I took this picture of Olympic Plaza with Pike's Peak in the background.
It was a pretty impressive complex to visit.

  1. Lucky you, you got there before the fires. From what I read today, Pike's Peak, Garden of the Gods, Leadville, Estes Park, Colorado Springs are all in the path of fire or on fire.
