When the team lands in Rio next week for the Games period, we will activate our city operations plan, with most athletes and several coaches living in the Olympic Village. Several factors led to our decision to stay here, including security, nutrition control and its motivational Olympic atmosphere. The majority of the team’s staff will stay at a dedicated US Sailing Team headquarters compound near the Marina da Gloria sailing venue. The same staff that has supported the athletes throughout their training periods in Niteroi— coaches, a sports psychologist, physiotherapists, a tactical advisor and local professional chefs—will be based at this facility. We are working in partnership with the USOC on team security and medical coverage during the Games period, with plans that cover the sailing team between the Village, Gloria team headquarters and sailing venue.
