Games09_ChanRowerReflections.jpgDay One of the 09 Games was a brutal set of five events. The sledge hammer event put most of the athletes outside their comfort zone. The final couplet was simple but extremely painful. At the end of the day, a few were even questioning the wisdom of going on.

Jeremy Thiel talks about his mindset through the final two events. He finished 3rd overall in 08, and came in focused on the podium.

Matt Chan describes the day, and welcomes the challenge.

Mikko Salo appears unfazed by whole ordeal.
