On the 8th of August, the Opening day of the Beijing Olympics, I traveled to China. Olympiatoppen (NOR NOC Elite sports program) had booked all the Norwegian athletes in business class to Beijing, to ensure a faster adaptation to the time difference in China. My trip went very well and I could sleep well for 5 hours on the plane from Stockholm to Beijing. All the procedures on the airport in Beijing went very fast. Less than one hour after I arrived we were in the car on our way to our Pre camp in Tianjin. A 90 minutes drive from Beijing.
