Zsuzsa Csobanki’s Olympic Diary-fifth entry

This is the fifth in a series of diary entries written by University of Arkansas Lady Razorback swimmer Zsuzsa Csobanki from the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens, Greece. Csobanki, an incoming senior from Budapest, Hungary, is making her first Olympic appearance for the Hungarian team. This is her experience in her own words.Csobanki wrote: I have so much energy. I swam on Friday, but I really feel I did not swim or practice a long time ago. The weather here is pretty hot even at 11:00 p.m. Everyday I get to see some games, of course, where we have Hungarians. I went to the Olympic Stadium. It is so huge and loud. I took so many pictures because I love the structure of the building. I saw the hammer throw where the Hungarian, Adrian Anus, won. He is so strong. I screamed for him, I was so loud he heard me and waved to me. It was my first gold medal I could see from the stadium. Unfortunately, I couldn’t hear the Hungarian National song from there, because the medal ceremony was the next day. But, I saw the 100 meter run, oh my goddess, they are sooooooo fast, it is amazing. I have to say that it is so different from TV than to be there. The next day we saw the discus. We won a gold medal and the bronze as well. Hungarian guys are so strong…….I went to see water polo as well. Russia and Hungary had a game, we won, so we had a pretty good day. The man’s water polo team is so good, nobody beat them yet. And they only have the semi-final and the final, I hope they will win at the end.Pretty soon I will go home. Honestly, I really do not want to. Everything will be the same again. So many teachers wrote me emails about what I have to do before I go home to prepare for classes. It is hard to believe that school starts again. This summer was so fast. I just came home a couple days ago. But, I really would like to see the team, the new swimmers and my roommate. So, I am looking forward.Love, Zsuzsa
