Spokane’s Redman crosses paths with Dan O’Brien at Olympic Training Center

Jamie Redman of Spokane crossed paths with a former University of Idaho track star as she works out with the U.S. Women's Rowing Team at the Olympic Training Center near San Diego.

Redman took time out to chat with former Olympic decathlete Dan O'Brien, who won a gold medal in the 1996 Summer Games in Atlanta.  O'Brien is one of the Center's ambassadors to athletes training for the 2012 Summer Olympics. He helps Redman and other athletes prepare for the pressures of the Olympic spotlight.

Redman, a product of Lewis and Clark High School and Yale University, said the U.S. Team training is hard work, but the center has a wealth of professional trainers, therapists and dieticians to help them hone their way toward London.  Said Redman:

“In between rows, I’m trying to utilize the many resources the O.T.C. offers the athletes: the newly renovated and expertly staffed Performance and Rehab Center; the delicious dining hall (serving plenty of vegetables, but no desserts, alas); the sports psychology and nutrition counseling; the on-site laundry facilities; the big-screen TVs in the Athlete Lounge… I am *so thankful* for the opportunity to train at this marvelous complex!”
