Let the Games (Soon) Begin

This week all of the pool swimmers and many of the Olympic 10K Marathon Swim athletes will be checking into the Olympic Village.

Mark Warkentin took one last stroll around Singapore over the weekend before heading to Beijing.

Warkentin visited the world-renowned Raffles Hotel which is the place for dignitaries and socialites traveling through Singapore. Dressed in his Olympic attire, Warkentin had a virgin Singapore Sling.*
