Rob's Olympic Experience!

2012/07/26 at 12:13PM by Rob


 

Rob (the 3rd business owner) has been lucky enough to work at the Olympics this year - here is a little report on what he has been doing!

Day 1 [pm shift] Just a training day getting familiar with the Newham Olympic training facility.

 Day 2 [pm shift] No athletes turned up but spent the day checking and setting up the Pole vault, long jump and high jump equipment.

Day 3 [am shift] First athlete, male marathon runner from Mongolia, his session was a continuous run for 80-90 minutes of 1K fast (3mins ish) and 1K recovery (5mins ish). The boss (Seb Coe) dropped in just at the end of the shift to check out the facilities, he came round to all of us to shake hands and say hello.

Day 4 [pm shift] More athletes today, 2 from Benin (Male 400m, session was light 2x350m flat out, female sprinter also in adidas training kit)  also a female long jumper from Seiara Leone who did a short sprints session, wearing Mizuno  kit. 

Friday July 20, Day 5 [day off]
