USA Youth Olympian Brendan Anderson, Colorado Springs, CO reports that "Workouts are going really well right now! We were at a separate training facility until today, but now we go to the competition venues from the 19th to the 21st for official practices. I've been getting in a lot of good work before the competition while enjoying the YOV and many of the other activities that YOG has to offer. The village is massive! It has several residential areas surrounded by cultural booths to explore cultures from all over the world. The dining area, the transportation network, and some training areas are all located in the village as well. Excitement, thousands of people, laughter, and events are a part of the village life too! It is really amazing here!"
