      Hi Spacenut. I have had things to do with the Olympics both in terms of my research and volunteering. In terms of my research, I interviewed Olympic champions to find out how they manage stress and heard some really fascinating stories. In terms of volunteering, I am a Games Maker and London Ambassador and will be at Wembley Arena and Wembley Stadium helping to scan tickets, show people to their seats etc… Are you looking to the Olympics yourself?

      Hi spacenut! I’ve not been involved with the Olympics directly, but I’ve recently had the chance to interview the person in charge of public health for the Winter Olympics a few years ago. It’s been a great chance to learn how the health authorities deal with illness outbreaks, and how London might have to cope this summer!

      How are you going to get involved? Are you looking forward to the Games?

      Hi spacenut! Yes, I’ve been involved with the Olympics and will be working at the Games in London later this year in a volunteer role. My volunteer role will involve helping athletes around to different venues and things 🙂 Do you have tickets to go to the Olympics?
