BACKGROUND: There are three Olympic Training facilities in the U.S., Lake Placid, NY; Colorado Springs, CO and Chula Vista, CA. The Chula Vista facility is open year-round and has training areas for Track & Field, Soccer, Field Hockey, Canoeing & Kayaking among other sports.

DIRECTIONS: Take Olympic Parkway east off I-805 and continue east until you see the Olympic Training Center (approximately 8 miles). Turn right into Olympic Training Center and park. Walk into visitor center.

CLUES: Walk counter-clockwise along the Olympic event flags until you get to the US Sailing flag. Face the eternal flame with your back on the sailing flagpole. At approximately 2:00 at the edge of the brick patio you will see a concrete block. Under the block you will find the Olympic Rings Microbox. Bring yellow, black, red, green and blue markers if you want to color rings appropriately.
