Kate Markgraf and Other U.S. Olympians Relax at Beijing Normal

The L.A. Times reports that Kate Markgraf and Heather O'Reilly, along with the rest of the U.S. Olympic Women's Soccer Team, were able to relax at Beijing Normal University before traveling to the site of their first Olympic game (August 9 against Norway).

USOC has arranged for Beijing Normal to be a haven for U.S. athletes during the Beijing Olympics. It won't all be relaxation, though -- the campus is outfitted to provide training facilities for most of the Olympic sports.

USOC hopes American athletes will enjoy extra practice time because of their exclusive access to Beijing Normal's campus and facilities. The U.S. Men's Basketball Team, among others, will practice there.
