Today's weather presented some challenges, and the volunteers showed great flexibility.

Volunteers at the field events cheerfully dealt with the mud and the muck...cleaning the shot puts and making sure that conditions were safe in the jumping events.

Tennis volunteers squeeged the courts to make them ready for play.

The track volunteers stood in the mist and light rain and never lost their enthusiasm.

The "indoor" volunteers were just as great, whether they were at basketball, soccer, Athlete Village or Wellness Village.

We love our volunteers almost as much as we love our athletes. Without our volunteers, our competitions would not be possible.

Thank you, and see you tomorrow!
