Canton's Olympic hurdler reports from London

Former University of Michigan track and field star shares his experiences inside the Olympic Village

Headline Goes Here

LONDON - London has been really good so far.

The fans, the athletes and random people on the streets are all excited about the Games. Everyone is just enjoying the experience. Personally, London has been very enjoyable.

My mother (Linda Porter) and Aunt (Norma Jenkins) have both arrived in London already and I was able to spend sometime with her. My brother's, sister's, and cousins will be coming into town in the next few days but I won't get to see them before I compete.

Watch: Canton couple run for different countries at Olympics

The Olympic Village has supplied us with everything we need and the USATF has really done a good job of making things easier for us, so we can remain focused. But I've been training really hard these last several days. I have one more hard session tomorrow and then it will be time for me to begin competing. So mostly, I'll be watching movies, watching a little bit of the track and field portion of the Games and sleeping (always good to catch up on some sleep).

That's all from London ... until next time,

Jeff Porter is on Team USA competing in the Men's 110m Hurdles during the Summer Games in London.  He lives in Canton, MI with his wife Tiffany Porter, who is competing in the Women's 100m Hurdles for Great Britain.
