A group of US cheerleaders is heading to London to cheer for the Men’s Basketball Semifinal and Finals. The group, sponsored by Varsity, is comprised of outstanding college cheerleaders and top instructors from throughout the United States. You can follow their Olympic Journey via Social Media here (on their Storify news page).
“Today we arrived in London! We spent most of the day getting everything set for the rest of the week.
First, we traveled to where we will be staying – which is within walking distance of the Olympic Village– Michael Phelps and Gabby Douglas are soo close! After settling in we headed to pick up our Olympic Credentials; while getting our ID’s made, we were not allowed to smile in our pictures, which was not easy for any of us due to all the excitement!
Later, we had to get some practicing in. We put together four timeout routines along with several other skills to perform at the basketball games (semi-finals and finals). GO Team USA!
We finished up our practice and headed out to have our first dinner in London – fish and chips anyone? Tomorrow we have to be ready at 6:00am to head to the Olympic Village, we are on standby to watch some of the other events, fingers crossed we get to see some Gymnastics or Track & Field, actually any of them would be cool! What would be your favorite event to watch?”
