Have I ever dreamt about being a world class athlete in the Olympics? Of course.
However, for me the experience is not about winning medals and breaking records (although all that is good and well). It’s about living in the Olympics Village and meeting all these people from different countries and cultures.
There will be 204 estimated nations participating in the 2012 London Olympics!
I’ll love to pop over to a different country’s living quarters every day – talk to them, eat what they eat, hear stories about life in their home country.
I don’t know if that’s against the rules (it probably is) but wouldn’t it be interesting to hear what they have to say and see what a gymnast eats vs say, a weight lifter?
That’s what I’ll do if I’m in the Olympics Village – spend some time in each nation’s quarters so I’ll get to know their culture better. I reckon it’ll be the best part and imagine the stuff I’ll be able to write about…
…or make videos about. 😀
Remember the Samsung Global Blogger contest I blogged about?
It’s closing soon on the 29th April and here’s what they will be looking for in your video audition:
- Confidence and energy in front of the camera
- A passion for your subject matter
- Imagination and originality
- A good sense of humor
- A social butterfly – do you use Twitter? Or talk to the world on your own blog?
- The ability to tell a story well through video and the written word
Here’s Jamie Oliver expounding a bit on it. You might also want to see their tips on making a great video.
I’ll love to be one of the chosen ones. It’ll be so much fun to be able to go there and represent Malaysia in covering the London 2012 Olympics from my own point of view, getting all the interesting bits about this penultimate sports event and the festivities surrounding it.
If you’re interested to apply, get on over to the Samsung Global Blogger contest to find out how you can get a chance to win a trip to London during the Olympics! It’s not too late.
You’ll be in the thick of all the action!
My video is coming up soon…wish me luck! 🙂
