Three Days in Utah


Staff member
The U.S. WNT trained for just three days in Utah before facing Canada on Saturday, June 30 at Rio Tinto Stadium. Kick-off is at Noon MT live on NBC with a 30-minute pre-game show starting at 11:3o a.m. MT.

Two of those trainings were at the Real Salt Lake training field and thanks to those folks from the club for the use of the pitch, which was in fantastic shape.

The weather has been hot, but not unbearable, and the U.S. players have enjoyed the short trip, especially as compared to their last game in Utah which featured some unusual weather conditions. See below...

Utah 2012 has been much more temperate for the USA and the team had a few good trainings, their last in the USA before heading to the U.K. in about 10 days to begin final preparation for the Olympics.

The altitude -- about 4,500 feet -- and the mid-day heat could have an impact on the match, but both the USA and Canada are at peak fitness with the Olympics just weeks away and the more than 16,000 fans that will fill Rio Tinto Stadium should be treated to an entertaining match. Thanks for tuning in live on NBC for the pre-game show at 10:30 a.m. PT / 11:30 a.m. MT / 12:30 p.m. CT / 1:30 ET.
