I’ve got to confess something:  I slept through my first Olympic assignment yesterday.  Yep IT happened.  I got done completing my first blog at 6 a.m. on Saturday morning – after a day that had lasted 22 hours.   I knew I was in bad shape as soon as my head hit the pillow, because my wake-up call was set for 7 a.m…   I never heard the alarm go off.   (read more)

IMPORTANT NOTE: Please post any comments on Newsweek’s blog- that way I can go to just one place to read and reply to comments there. Thanks for all the great feedback so far! -Vince

I was reading you blog on Newsweek (which is FANTASTIC) and watching the Olympics at the same time when I had a weird twilight moment.

I had just started reading about the synchronized diving and was looking at the picture of Guo Jingling and Wu Minxia, when their names were called on TV. I was able to watch them dive on TV and view their picture at the same time (they actually just dove agin). It is amazing to be able to read about behind the scene events while the Olympics are taking place. Please keep up the good work. I feel that your blog adds a sense of reality that our culture has started to lack. Thank you!

Vincent, thanks for taking the time to write this blog and give us some insight to how things are going over there. The inner workings and reality behind your images is fascinating.

I did that once but Kate Jarvis was nice enough to call me and wake me up! Take some B vitamins, it helps me a lot on my 200 mile rides!

Your photos are sight for soar eyes. You’re doing amazingly great having so little sleep. Well, who would sleep any way during this great Olympic Games where the energy of competition is on the highest level.
