When asked how it feels to know that she will be competing in the 2000 Olympics, Rodriguez replied, I don't think that it's real yet, and I probably won't think so until I get to Sydney. I'm training hard and trying to take things one day at a time.
Rodriguez is training at the Hillenbrand Aquatic Center twice a day with Arizona diving team and once a day by herself. Her coach
from Puerto Rico coaches her daily at Hillenbrand.
