London Olympics 2012

Im really sorry I have abandoned this blog for the past 3 months... However I hereby promise to begin again, full on, posting at least once a week. On the plus side, I have accumulated tons of great pictures of my holidays! So I will have loads to post on- and once that is done, I can start posting on my life here in Bath...

This summer...I got to volunteer as a London 2012 Gamesmaker!!!!!!!!! I cannot describe how amazing the experience was. I love every second, these were some of the highlights: 1) walking through the olympic park in the morning when it was all empty except all the purple-uniformed-gamesmakers 2) Talking to people from all over the world. 3) Listening to the Brazilian, Argentinean and UK national anthems 4) Getting a free ticket from a friend's of my mom to watch the closing ceremony!!!!       When I was a kid I used to dream of going to the Olympics and representing my country, I guess dreams do come true, not exactly playing a sport as I had dreamed of, but I was there. I was a part of London 2012 Olympics.

Picture with Ryan Lochte, I left my position in the stadium to see why there was so much fuss in another sector, and it was him! I also so a few other celebrities such Amaechi, Evander Holyfield, Ludacris

 The Basketball arena- hosted firstly all basketball eliminatories and the handball finals
                                                               Me in my uniform!
 Pins! Everyone was very much into the collection of pins, I didnt get very involved with it, and saved a few for my friend's little brother!

  I don't have many more pics of my volunteering experience because I have a pretty big camera which I couldn't carry around, but I did take lots of the closing ceremony

 Spotted the Uruguayan flag, yey!!!

 John Lennon tribute, one of my favourite parts

 Spice Girls!

 Me with my Brazilian flag!!
 Thats Alessandra Ambrosio, but I obviously didnt recognize and didnt wait for her to put her head up!! I was just taking a picture because they participated on the Brazilian performance! haha
 London Mayor- Boris

This way to Rio de Janeiro 2016! See you there!

It seriously was one of the most incredible 3 weeks of my life! The energy was spectacular, the sports performances were unbelievable... the determination, courage, hard work that all the athletes and organizers put into it, is beyond admirable...Olympics are really the greatest show on earth- and I recommend everyone who ever has the chance of participating in any way, DO IT! You won't regret it!
