It was a light day for the U-17 MNT. The 11 starters from yesterday’s win vs. Cuba were treated to the heated pool at the spa located here in our resort for some regeneration. There they stretched, shook their legs out and loosened up a bit before getting back to the regular training on Wednesday.
The boys did not partake in the “Mysterious Turkish” massage offered by the spa. Let’s just say that it involved a back rub with an ox horn. A quick survey says that they prefer the work of the team’s massage therapist to an ox horn.
Meanwhile, the nine players who didn’t start yesterday went through a short training at a new field, which was located on the grounds of a Beaches Resort. That was a first for the YNT Blog – we’ve never seen a field in the middle of a golf course. The people playing through Hole Eight were very polite about trying to figure out who we were.
