MANCHESTER, England (AP) — Diana Taurasi and her U.S. women's basketball teammates are used to crazy travel schedules playing in the WNBA and overseas.
So their pre-Olympic training trip that has the Americans traveling a quarter of the way around the world is nothing new to the players.
By the time they reach London on July 25, the team will have gone nearly 6,750 miles, hitting three countries in just 10 days.
The U.S. didn't travel as much before the Beijing Games, training in San Francisco for a few days before playing a warm-up tournament in southern China. This time around the Americans started with three days in Washington before taking the 3,500-mile journey to Manchester.
