USA Judo's elite team, including our very own Olympic Gold Medalist Kayla Harrison (NYAC/Team FORCE, Wakefield, Mass.), arrived at the Montevideo Airport this morning for the Pan American Open this weekend.
For many of the athletes, including Kayla, this is the first major competition since the Olympic Games in London. Look for two-time Olympian Travis Stevens (NYAC/Team FORCE, Wakefield, Mass.), George Truong (U.S. Olympic Training Center, Colorado Springs, CO), Kathleen Sell (US Olympic Training Center, Colorado Springs, CO).
