Team DC's countdown to Cologne

From the Washington Blade:

More than 100 athletes from Team DC are in the final preparations to depart for Gay Games VIII Cologne 2010, which is being held in Cologne, Germany from July 31 to Aug. 8, 2010.

There will be competitions in more than 30 sports at the Games with the Team DC contingent vying for medals in 11 sports, including soccer, basketball, running, golf, cycling, tennis, track and field, bowling, swimming, triathlon and bodybuilding. Results will be posted at www.games-cologne.de/

Through the Federation of Gay Games scholarship program, Team DC has donated registration fees and housing at the Games to athletes from the United States, Jamaica and the Philippines and is also hosting a welcome reception in Cologne for the teams of the world. Team DC actively promotes the founding principles of the Gay Games, which are “Participation, Inclusion and Personal Best.”

This would be a good time to mention where the Team DC athletes are training. While there are several individual athletes, there are also many team/clubs under the Team DC umbrella. Some are competitive teams and others are noncompetitive clubs. All are welcoming new members. You can link to the teams through www.teamdc.org

There are too many to list here, but teams include a wide array of sports: basketball (DC Sentinels), cycling (DC Velo), racquetball (Capital Splats Racquetball League), golf (Lambda Links), rugby (Washington Renegades for men and DC Furies for women), even cheerleading (Cheer DC).
