Chris Morgan's Gay Games VII diary: 6 July 2006

Gay Games Ambassador Chris Morgan shared his experience at Gay Games VII in Chicago in 2006.

Thursday 6th to Thursday 13th July, Acclimatising:

I've already been in Chicago for a whole week, acclimatising and adjusting my body clock. Training is going well. Quad's gym in Boys Town is an amazing facility, with a great atmosphere and equipment for bodybuilders and power lifters.

I'm already calling upon valuable experience gained at the World Championships in Atlanta in 2004, and so far things are looking good. My body clock has turned around nicely and my energy levels are highly reasonable.

Earlier in the week... I attended the offices of Chicago 2006 and witnessed first hand the commitment of the Gay Games staff and volunteers. The whole place was buzzing with excitement, everyone is working extremely hard to deliver the Games on time.

To see these wheels in motion is truly ... inspirational.
