Since the Winter Olympics have just started I wanted to share a quick recap of our visit to the US Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs.
From their website:
The U.S. Olympic Complex in Colorado Springs is the flagship training center for the U.S. Olympic Committee and the Olympic Training Center programs. USA Swimming and USA Shooting have their national headquarters on complex. More than 15 other member organizations, as well as two international sports federations and the USOC headquarters are also located in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
The CSOTC is able to provide housing, dining, training facilities, recreational facilities and other services for more than 500 athletes and coaches at one time on the complex. Athletes are selected to train at the Colorado Springs Olympic Training Center by their respective National Governing Body.
We bought our tickets ($12) online since the center is open to the public and showed up for our tour. Make sure to check their website for tour times and availability.
We had a great time touring the grounds and seeing where the athletes train.
Highly recommend a visit if you are in Colorado Springs! Go USA!
