The Today Show taping of my Olympic journey will air in the U.S. on Wednesday morning!

Peter Alexander from the today show stopped by today to visit. We were at Beijing Normal University. He said they will be airing the piece they taped back in June on Wednesday in the U.S.

P.S. Guess who is getting stretched out on the floor of the computer room? Dara Torres! Pretty cool!

Hmmm...doesn't make you wonder what Mel will be doing 8 years from now, when she's 41?

So that is today! I always have the Today Show on while I am getting ready for work!

I hope I am still home when you air!

Enjoy every moment...two more days for us!

I just saw that on the Today show and Googled you... awesome interview! Also, if you're looking for a good guide to Beijing, BooksOnBoard has discounts on all its Olympic-related titles (2008 Beijing Summer Olympics ebooks here), which could be quite handy... speaking from personal experience, I definitely do not recommend going to Beijing without some sort of travel guide!

Good luck!!!

Melanie! I am so excited to see you compete! I hope you are having a great time and are enjoying China and being at the Olympics!

I feel so fortunate to have trained and watch you get ready for this time in your life!

Say hello to John for me. I can't wait to come see the new gym when I get back for Christmas break :)

Good Luck, and God Bless!

Love, Shala
