Towson's Anita Nall is a gold-medal Olympic favorite in the women's 200-meter breaststroke swimming event. In an occasional diary, Nall will share her thoughts from the Summer Games.
BARCELONA, Spain -- As I sat and watched the opening ceremonies on television Saturday night, I was kind of thinking how happy I was that I made the choice not to attend.
The ceremonies were beautiful, but they required a lot of walking for the athletes and because my first race was so soon, I needed to stay off my feet. But I got to see everything from TV. The people in the walk could not possibly see everything that occurred in the stadium.
