Allie Hann-McCurdy and Michael Coreno in Sweden, competing for the first time at the World Championships
We have arrived in Sweden!! We left home on Friday morning, for a five-hour flight to Toronto. From Toronto it was a six-hour trip to Heathrow airport in London. Then finally an hour or so later we touched down in Gothenburg, Sweden.
Fortunately for us, we’ve been so excited to compete here that its somewhat numbed the effects of jet-lag. For reference, its 6:00pm here, and 10:00am in Vancouver.
Travel does a number on anyone’s body but especially an athlete. We always have to be sure we have enough food, (carbohydrates mostly and nothing too heavy), water and sleep, which can be difficult on a long crowded flight with an unhappy baby sitting across from you.
