Drew Thompson (swimming): I had a great time at Magic Kingdom today. I rode the Space Mountain and said it was fun and scary. Me and my team did great swimming today, but don’t know if we qualified to swim tomorrow. I enjoyed the ceremony yesterday and thought the music and Disney characters were fun but thought it was great walking out and hearing the cheers for Missouri.

Mariah Lucero (swimming): So today I swim the 4×50 relay and we made the finals and then after we went to magic kingdom and rode some rides like space mountain and speedway And had a root beer float and then went for dinner.

Jody Davis (track and field): Today started before the sun 🌞 came up. I had prelims for my 50 meter and 100 meter race. I shave 8 seconds of my 100 meter time! We then went to healthy athletes and did the fit feet and healthy promotions. We ended the night with stretching and a light javelin practice before bed!

Brooke White (bowling): We went to the bowling alley today and then we came back to the rooms then we healthy athletes then came and eat dinner then went to the little store and then came back to the rooms and went to the tents.

Lynna Hodgson (PR athlete-leader): Day Four June 6, 2022 This morning my alarm went off at 5am. Thank goodness I got everything ready last night! Got ready and headed to breakfast. I was supposed to meet Kayla at 5:15am. She called me on the way and asked if I had breakfast, I had to ask if I’m going the right way to breakfast, and I was. This morning Kayla and I are with the golf team this morning. Let’s go team MO! Wow what a morning! Golf team did awesome! There was a lot of walking! I’m already hit 20,000 steps and it’s 2:17pm. I loved seeing the athletes faces when they know they did a great job. And I didn’t get LOST! That’s a big plus! In the afternoon, I went back to my room. The evening activity was the unified competition. It was neat to see; we saw Drew McIntyre (WWE) and saw Tim Shriver.
