“Grace settled into the Olympic Village and has already been out for a swim and bike workout today (Sept. 6). A brief track workout is to come later in the day.

The weather is great, and definitely the excitement is building for the Opening Ceremonies. As she exited the pool this morning, the Paralympic media team caught up with her for an impromptu interview. She is definitely taking it all in. The Olympic Village is amazing, and she already knows how impressive Copacabana Beach is!

As for the proud parents, Tim and Robin Norman, we just outfitted ourselves with a couple of USA T-shirts while we were waiting to board the plane for Rio de Janeiro!

Check out the site www.USA Triathlon. Their official posting of “Meet Grace Norman” is up as one of their main features for the day! We are very excited to touch down in Rio and begin the adventure!” — Robin Norman.
