Me at the Olympics Jumps in Whistler
I have volunteered as a DRIVER for the 2010 Olympics. I am driving the athletes from the Olympic Village to the Venues. I am driving figure skaters and speed skaters to Richmond Olympic Oval in Richmond BC, CANADA.
The village is beatuiful and is very much like a small community. Athletes from all nations walking among each other and eating in the dining hall. They have access to food 24hrs a day and they can have steaks, soup, sandwiches, MacDonald's and Pizza. I also noticed that a lot of Countries brought their own food in as well. Obviously North American food won't feel like "home" for everyone.
I was nervous at first talking with the athletes as I drove them to the venues, but they were practicing and perhaps less focused at that point. I know that in the next few days once competition starts, I will have to allow them to start the conversation. I wouldn't want them to lose their focus on my account. GO CANADA GO!!!
