It's Christmas Eve

Two years of training... qualifying... sacrificing so many other things at home... and the final journey starts tomorrow. Parents have started arriving, tickets have been handed out and the uniforms have been folded.

The players are mostly relaxing, getting massages and taking a dip in the ice bath to make sure they're 100 percent for tomorrow. Today, the team went through a pretty light training in the morning and got their first glimpse of the beautiful Estadio Nelson Oyarzun - lots of ooohs and aaahs from the delegation as they walked around the newly renovated stadium that's expected to hold a sell-out crowd tomorrow afternoon.

Wanna learn more about the tournament? Or did you already know that eight out of 18 players on the 2008 Gold Medal-winning Women's National Team have played here? You can take a glimpse through the years by clicking here.
