Thanks, Hong Kong

Tomorrow the team departs for Tianjin - its official Olympic venue for the first two matches. We'd be remiss if we didn't say thanks to the city of Hong Kong for serving as a great host as the team got acclimated to the time change and to the weather before the Games. The people were friendly and our hotel was beautiful - as were the views of the very nearby harbor. Though we're excited to get to the actual games, we will definitely miss this huge city and its people.

Hong Kong is actually the host city for the Olympic Equestrian competition, which takes place close to our game stadium. As you can see in the building pictured above, the city is proud and excited to be a part of the events - the famous Olympic rings can be seen all over the place. We know that the equestrian competitors will be very happy here!

Question. I know the WNT will miss the opening ceremony. Will the Men be able to be involved? It would be cool to see the boys parade out.
