WNT Mar 26, 2010
The USA's morning training this morning was in the weight room and Casey Nogueira thought she'd warm up with some curls with the 100-pounders (above). Ok, she could only lift it a few inches off the ground, but she and her teammates did get a great workout with more reasonable weights and strengthening exercises (see Kelley O'Hara below). The USA lifted at the gym at the San Diego Jewish Academy and the facilities were remarkably nice for a small high school (well, K-12 school). Heck, they were great even for a mid-sized D-3 college. The folks at the SDJA there were extremely helpful and accomodating (thanks much!), especially as the team also shot a TV commerical in the gym for U.S. Soccer to promote the WNT matches over the next year or so. (See below O'Hara).
