Branagh: Cuba again


Ni hao!! I just wanted to send a quick hello from Beijing! We are having a great time here, the people are so friendly, and the venues are amazing, especially beach volleyball. We have had awesome crowds at all of our matches and it is so fun for me to have my family and friends here. They are having a blast. I have been able to hangout with them a little bit, but believe it or not our days get filled up quickly! I thought we would have more time to see other events and other stuff, but we have been pretty busy. We’ll see the last few days.

We finished our pool play last night with a tough match against Cuba.
With that win we won our pool 3-0. So, we waited for the draw to be announced and found out we will face Cuba tomorrow morning.

The fun and excitement continues. It is an honor to be here and an amazing feeling walking out on the court hearing people chant USA. We look forward to great games ahead for all US teams……..thank you for all the cheers and support! We can hear you all the way from the US!! Keep it comin’!

We’re all rooting for you back home and would like nothing more than a USA matchup during the gold medal match. Keep pushing and hope you get to soak up all that Beijing has to offer! Take care and congrats on your Olympic debut. GO USA!!
