london we go hard




You can not escape the Olympics. If it's not interfering with your journey to work, it is on your TV screens being used in adverts for just about everything. The build up has been slightly ridiculous and all we seem to see on the TV is the greedy and negative sides of the games. Despite all of that, I am actually looking forward to the Olympics as I will be part of it. I will be one of 70,000 volunteers working behind be scenes, know as game makers. I am based at the Excel on the Technology Team working behind Fencing and Taekwondo.
I sent my application to be a game maker for the Olympics from a little internet cafe in Darwin, Australia in 2010. I still remember the very first interview I had and I can't believe the day of the Opening Ceremony is finally here.

This is a post to show you the uniform that I will be wearing.  As Adidas are sponsors of the Olympics I will be dressed head to toe in sportswear, including the first pair of trainers I have owned for a long time. I will be volunteering for 10 days out of the 2 weeks as well as working at my full time job when I can. It's going to be a busy few weeks but I am sure there is going to be an amazing atmosphere that will make it all worth while.
