This is Jeremy (Angie's husband) filling in for her today because she has limited internet access and a tight schedule while on the road. Angie and Tyra are over in Shanghai, China competing in their first FIVB tournament of the 2010 season.
The long flight from LA to Shanghai allowed Angie to put the disappointment from last week's AVP event in Santa Barbara behind her and refocus her attention to the task at hand. It definitely worked, because she and Tyra came out firing and played some determined volleyball on the first day of competition.
They won their opening round match against Norway and then followed that with a tough, come from behind victory over Mexico. The next few weeks will be one of the longest road trips of the year as her and Tyra will go from China to Rome and then on to Korea before making their way back to the USA for the Huntington Beach AVP event. (I think it is great that she can travel the world while doing something she loves.
This beach volleyball thing is pretty amazing!!) Please be sure to join Angie's fan page on Facebook and follow her on Twitter.
Thanks for reading.
