2012 Olympic Games Maker


On Sunday 22nd may I had my interview to become a games maker, I was interviews to be part of the canoe team which is for both the Canoe Slalom and Flat Water Racing at the interview we was asked which area we would be best suited and what we would ideally like to do. Before you go through to have your interview there is host which come round looking for people and asking about there skills and what they can bring to the event. This is a good time to treat it like a interview tell them all your qualifications the more you tell the more it may sink in well that how I feel anyway.

The interview is not that bad it is very much read from a book to you (the interviewer is also a volunteer) just bare that in mind if you feel nerves . You don’t find out until late 2011 around October time onwards whether you ave what it take to become a games maker.

Please feel free to comment on this post if you have any worrys or would like to know a little more before your date of interview, and for those that have already had there interview leave comments with advice for others.

Paddling the legacy loop at Lee Valley White Water Centre

on Tuesday 10 may i was lucky enough to paddle the legacy loop at the Lee Valley White Water Centre, the course was great fun and I managed to film myself going down the course, The video below shows the course and some of its waves and features, I am sorry the quality is not brilliant i will try and get a better one next time i visit the centre. You can see from the video I am using my trusted Hiko gear that is designed for white water use.  Take a look at my reviews category for all my reviews on Hiko’s gear.
